This is not sexytime noises, but I had a douchebro neighbor who would have loud dramatic fights with his whiny girlfriend at all hours, with the windows wide open, and my boyfriend and I started yelling advice out to them mid-fight, like “Girl, dump Jordan, he’s a toooolll!” » 4/22/15 6:49pm Wednesday 6:49pm

Ok Jezebel (since this is apparently where I publicly work out all of my issues in a caffeine-induced frenzy, including my deeply troubling ambivalence towards reproducing one day), I kept seeing this pop up on the internets with the caption “yep, that’s what being a mom is like!”.

I go on and off the pill pretty often and I’ve never really noticed much of a transition (my bf and I end up doing long distance for a few months at a time fairly often).
