This feels extremely like what you’d see on an actress playing a kindly but harried English teacher in a period-correct adaption of a Paula Danziger novel — although to be wholly accurate, it would also need clogs. Regardless, I feel like we need to invent a word that means, “I liked this okay when I tried it on at home, but now that I’m out in the world, I can tell that it just doesn’t quite sing.” ILTOWITIOAHBNTIOITWICTTIJDQS is FAR too long of an acronym and I think it’s what they say on Game of ┬áThrones when they get stabbed. Let’s reconvene later and open the table to suggestions.
