Houseplants, dogs, and Kate Spade

My parents splurged $50 on a houseplant (from IKEA), and you know what they said in their defence? They compared it to me wanting a dog.ย How does that even work?! We don’t even own a dog. That argument only works if we had a dog, but we don’t… Wait, does this mean they’re OK with me getting a dog now?!

Also, I bought a $250+ Kate Spade bag a couple months ago, I’ve only brought it out three times, and there’s already a horrendous blue jean dye transfer stain on it. I’ve thrown the Kate Spade leather cleaner on it, and it has done nothing. Shall I just never use this bag with jeans ever again or something?! I can’t believe I would have spent $250+ on a bag and not be able to wear jeans with it. Or maybe this just means I need to invest in properly expensive Armani Exchange jeans, ugh.

It seems like I’m a big fan of the “?!” exclamation marks today. I shall justify this by sharing this relevant tweet by Chris Evans.
