    • what does it say about me that when i read this list my initial thought was, “well if you’re feeling really self-loathing, you should probably make all your ex’s favorite foods…” yeah. i’m That Girl in a break-up. sigh.

  1. 41. If you’re Dutch, the giant dark chocolate letter J you were gonna give her for Feast of St. Nicolas (Sinterklaas), melted down and made into chocolate strawberries to be enjoyed with your bestie while watching Buffy. They tasted like vengeance and cultural pride.

    Also I second the tequila.

  2. #3 – Yes! Now I can enjoy my strange little snack in peace and without judgment.

    Also #18 – Nothing wrong with some three buck chuck. Even if you’re drinking it alone. While sewing. And watching Downton Abbey.

  3. None of this applies to me since I have never had a break up with anyone. :( But all of these are still good.
