I started to write but never pitched an article about how my perspective has changed regarding movies, especially Disney movies, since having kids.

She was not a college student, she was some kind of adult, but she didn't have much character development beyond, "That hot chick who just moved in."

I first read The Clan of the Cave Bear series when I was in 7th grade, a time when I thought sex was a weird and gross idea. I reread it in 10th Grade and appreciated those scenes a lot more.

My mom was Southern Baptist and had a big thing about witches and ghosts and demons and didn't want me to read anything that featured any of those things, but I love scary stories. My reading level was higher than my age and maturity level, so a lot of what I wanted to read was not appropriate, according to my mom. She got angry with the librarian for allowing me to check out scary books, but the librarian basically said, "I'm not going to stop her from checking out anything in the elementary school library." Mom got over it and stopped monitoring my book choices, which is how I read the Clan of the Cave Bear series in 7th grade.

Also, my bookworm aunt told me that I shouldn't read Salem's Lot because it scared her so much at 13 that she wore a cross around her neck for a year afterward even though she's an atheist. I went and got that book immediately and was very disappointed.

Yeah, I had a step-grandpa too, my grandma remarried shortly after I was born, and while he had his own kids and grandkids, I never felt like he treated us differently. Which is as it should be!

There are much less gross ways of expressing that than "hubba hubba".

My husband did that yesterday - voted in the Republican primary (because in Texas you have to choose) just so he could vote "anyone but Trump". I have heard from other Democrats who did the same.
