Families, who needs ’em?

HUGE JOKE, guys. Because we literally all need them to survive as a species. But how will you deal with your family this weekend? Here’s how, times five.

Strong women, who needs ’em?

Not us! We’ve got this tree right here!

Guilt, who needs it?

Banish it henceforth by signing up for the race of your choice, so that you’ll know in the back of your mind that you’ve got fitness on lock. That way you can eat as many cookies as you want.

History, who needs it?

We do! It is super neat to read about historical 1862 wartime Christmases. Maybe “neat” isn’t the right word, as their lives sounded pretty sucky by 1862, but listen. It all worked out OK in the end. For us. Kind of.

Well, dang, we got ourselves a mighty fine museum

The VMFA gets a huge compliment, while the rest of us applaud loudly and knowingly. You’ve come a long way since the Fabergé-and-equestrian-portrait days, baby.

It is super nice to see someone so excited about education!

Heart, you are so warm right now.
