The Comment Awards Are Sleeping With Their Ex. Maybe. Possibly.

Hello, my loves! Because I care so much about you, I think it’s important that I tell you this thing that I learned: you can eat Girl Scout cookies in the bathtub. And you should probably do that this weekend! Just make up a little bowl of your cookie of choice and balance it on the ledge of the tub and get all nice and warm and read and eat cookies to your heart’s content! It will change your life, I swear to god.
