    I want to be with grown ups
    I'm a mom. I have 2 kids. J is going to be 9 next month, and 9 is still kind of young. So, when I have to remind her now and again to "stop chewing like a cow," it seems relatively appropriate. I also am careful in my reprimands (i.e., I don't think I always say she's chewing like a cow), because she has an overbite and other tooth issues, and I think it's really hard for her to completely chew with her mouth closed. There's still a difference between "her tooth is in the way" and "she's chewing like a cow" - like when she doesn't even TRY to resemble a human being. That's getting more and more rare, and seems to happen most when it's just she and E at the table for breakfast, and she wants to wriggle around under her sister's skin.

    Right now, my kids are at school. I am at school. So then WHY do I feel like I need to not only say, but SCREAM, "Stop Chewing Like a COW!!!"

    Oh, because there's a boy (who must be at least 21, or he wouldn't be here) in the law library who has like 17 pieces of gum in his mouth, and who is chewing so obnoxiously and disgustingly that even though I moved my seat to the other side of this area, I can still fucking hear him chewing! Holy shit! J couldn't even touch this boy with his chewing and slobbering and sucking. I mean, this is absolutely disgusting.

    Okay, back to IP.
