I tore up Kroger Angel Food Cake into a bowl. I took a sides-only small jar of cream peanut butter in the microwave after adding about 4 oz of semi- sweet mini Barry Callebaut chocolate chunks in the jar.

I started a free trial of YouTube Premium so I could binge watch Hotel Hell and Kitchen Nightmares all day in order to not have to see any ads to interrupt any attempt at…
Being an Ugly Woman is Liberating
I just deleted my first response post to another post on Mediun about toxic femininity and because I don’t want my coworkers at work to see what I said (not that they read per se but they stay Googling and Facebooking each other. I don’t get it…I digress.) But that moment of full frontal confrontation with my cowardice in deleting that one-minute read of a post inspired writing this piece.
I’d always envisioned talking about this subject as a TED talk but then I figured who would want to watch my ugly ass pontificate…
