My husband and Kitty came to watch the videos! Anne, we’ve been blog friends so long that you had a kid, made another kid, carried it for 9 months, gave birth, and now the kid is 7 months old. Hooray to friendship!
December 21, The One Who Is: So much going on in such a short story. Wonderfully rich. It conjured so many emotions. A lump in my throat, a tear to my eye. (Your baby had a lot to say about it, too :).)
haha yes it was very complex, I struggled finding an appropriate way to talk about it, which is probably obvious in the video LOL
December 22, Returning to the Problem: This story was too freakishly timely given the state of affairs in the world today. It was a difficult read, though. The author called it a “frankenstory” in his Hingston & Olsen interview (https://www.hingstonandolsen.com/2018/22/eugene-lim-returning-to-the-problem), and I think that pretty much sums it up. I can’t say I found it an entertaining read, but there were some interesting tidbits in there (and only 1 footnote). Today’s cover reminded me of a prison. Coincidence? I think not. I, too, honed in on the line you referenced.
Hmm glad i wasn’t alone in that! And I just received a Donald Trump mask in a holiday gift exchange (sigh)
I love your gold scrunchie!
These stories sound intense. Yay for epidurals!
It’s a bummer about the chocolate advent calendar. Maybe next year you should just go nuts and buy a new kind of chocolate treat for every day in December. 🙂
thanks-the scrunchie is fun right? I love it too. And yes, very intense story today 🙂
I think you should let Arthur review the next one! The second one sounds as if you found it really thought-provoking, which isn’t always easy in a short story. Maybe next year you should MAKE a chocolate advent calendar where you choose all your own favourite chocolates…
I was thinking I should force my husband to make me a chocolate advent calendar LOL
