that Lena Dunham was my best friend (for obvious reasons), and I was trying to tell her about how shitty my life was turning out.
Once I got to the actual root causes of my shitty existence (I forget what those were), we walked into her kitchen where she, in turn, started taking off her clothes. All the while, I’m still talking casually as if this was all a very routine thing. Then, she reached into the fridge, grabbed a rotisserie chicken, turned to me, and stepped into the shower/bathtub (which was in the space where an oven would’ve been had it been a conventional kitchen). She looked at me one last time before drawing the shower curtain and said, “that’s really weird!” I wasn’t keeping a tab of all the weird that was currently happening. Instead, I continued with my list of all things wrong in my life (note: she being my best friend was not one of them).
She never started the water. And, I could hear her butt sticking and clamping to the bottom of the tub as she reclined- chicken in tow. The foil on the bird beat against itself as she gnawed its meat to bones. Then, it stopped. I stopped. She stopped.
All of a sudden, she peeked from behind the curtain with a chicken-greased face and said, “you know, I know what you mean. There was this one time when my mom was supposed to pick me up some tampons and…”
Then, the dream ended.

WOW, emerge your ears in this beauty.
I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.
The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time). Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia? And not just with the kids, but with each other. I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything. They don’t treat their children like children. They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point.
It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
