The Comment Awards Are Watching Wishbone

A small, brown and white dog peeking over their laptop screen, with a caption that says "Hey did you see that comment?!"

Hi there, fireflies! I was looking through my sophomore yearbook last night, so instead of saying that I hope you’re staying cool, I suddenly have the urge to say that I hope you’re having fun in the sun and getting laid in the shade, and then sign it with the full number to my landline, even though we only had one class together and talked like three times.

This week, Stef wrote one of my new favorite things: There Will Never Be Another Wishbone.

Dani Janae’s got the five outfits you need for being unapproachably hot at the reunion.

Casey knows which fictional tween heroine you are. This quiz was so accurate!!!!!

From Shea, this was perfect: The Five “Fast Car” Covers that Helped Me Get Free This Summer.

I helped a reader who’s caught in the push and pull of an on-again, off-again relationship.

Ro taught us what vabbing is. I read this humming A Whole New World under my breath!

Emu Emmanuel has two mommies! 

Niko journaled from the land of Covid.

And then there were your comments!

On So You Want To Go To The Beach:

The Swan, Interrupted Award to sighofrelief:

I do need a ding dang robe. I bought a kimono ages ago thinking that I was gonna swan around like a libertine all day nut it turns out I can’t bear the thought of red wine stains on the silk. Libertine card revoked.

On There Will Never Be Another Wishbone:

The Dog’s Nose Award to shibbie:

I loved Wishbone so much! The theater near me recently put on a production of Cyrano de Bergerac and I was explaining the plot to my partner, but realized I was prettttty sure that I only knew it from Wishbone. We never did see the play, but we did go home and watch the episode.

On Quiz: Which Fictional Heroine From a Classic Tween Book Are You?

The First Place in the Science Fair Award to Laura:

Holy crap. This quiz is… perfect. I got Margaret, who was not my favorite, but the description is spot-on and… god I loved the questions. You are my people.

On The Five “Fast Car” Covers that Helped Me Get Free This Summer:

The Fast Car, Full Eyes, Can’t Lose Award to Zephr:

Apparently i needed to cry at of.these. Black Pumas was my personal fav! And I could totally run to the Jonas Blue cover as well.

On If My Clit Were Lost in the Woods, the Aer Would Still Find It:

The Living It Up! Award to Kristana:

If My Clit Were Lost in the Woods, the Aer Would Still Find It

On  Ruby Rose’s “1Up” Is a New Contender For Worst Movie Ever Made:

The Cheat Code Award to Julie:

Please know that I hate myself for doing this, but it’s literally the only thing about video games that I know so I can’t help myself, it’s “left right left right

And on The Five Drinks You Taste in Heaven: How a Coffee Shop Became Home:

The Where Everybody Knows Your Name Award to cleo:

This brought tears to my eyes. I don’t even know why I’m crying. This is beautiful and I miss having a place to go that feels like home.

  1. Oh, now I’m tearing up again!

    AS is my place on the internet when everyone knows my name, but I’d like to have that IRL again. Someday. When I’m less afraid of eating and drinking indoors in public.

    Stay gold Darcy.
