“Look at the Hardy Boys! They started out as kid detectives just solving mysteries in Bayport and now they have an entire book series about them!”
"My parents died years ago. I was very close to them. I still miss them terribly. I know I always will. I long to believe that their essence, their personalities, what I loved so much about them, are - really and truly - still in existence somewhere. […] Plainly, there’s something within me that’s ready to believe in life after death. And it’s not the least bit interested in whether there’s any sober evidence for it. So I don’t guffaw at the woman who visits her husband’s grave and chats him up every now and then, maybe on the anniversary of his death. It’s not hard to understand. And if I have difficulties with the ontological status of who she’s talking to, that’s all right. That’s not what this is about. This is about humans being human."

#!! so cool
Okay can I talk about my binder for a sec?
I’m a 34D, so all binders are awkward for me. Small band, large cup. So I never get quite flat, but some lumpy monstrosity with underboob poking out. But this one gets me the closest to flat while being the most comfortable binder I own.
And it looks like a tanktop!! And it was $10!!
It’s got stretchy bits on one side, and a line of bra-like clasps on the other that you can adjust to three different sizes, again like a bra. I didn’t overheat or even really sweat even when wearing it under a shirt in early summer pre-storm humidity. And once you get yourself situated just right, you can’t tell the tank is actually a binder.
EDIT: Here’s the link!
The listing has expired. Here’s a new link!
10 DOLLARIDOOS FOR ALL THE BABIES
I HAVE A MIGHTY NEED.
I HAVE ONE OF THESE!
It is seriously the most amazing binder I have ever had.
I may try this. I feel so much more like a human being when my boobs are squished. I have switched exclusively to sports bras, the squishier the better.
I can attest to this binder being comfortable and awesome, because I have one of them, myself. In fact, it’s even the binder I wore for our Smut Peddler story! :O So meta.
