Obnoxious loves

Rachael Conlin Levy

Five things I’m loving and laughing over, lately:

(1) My teen-age chef turned 14.

(2) Ad copy on the back of the Old Spice label. Content “contains odor-fighting ‘atomic robots’ that ‘shoot lasers’ at your ‘stench monsters’ and replaces them with fresh, clean, masculine ‘scent elves.’ ”

(3) Flannery O’Connor responds to an English professor, asking for an explanation of “A Good Man is Hard to Find.”

(4) The unofficial song of the social worker by Junior Brown.

(5) Apartment Therapy’s video on How to Freeze Your Jeans. (Thanks, Megan!) I shared this with my chef, whose first question was:

How long would I freeze them?

OMG.

    Chaja is a beautiful young woman. These pictures make me realize how much I’ve missed of her growing up. It makes me sad.

    Happy Birthday Chaja!

    Thank you, Kyndale. I love her body language in these photos. (And the dinner was delicious, too!)

  3. Ah, to be a young chef. She looks like she’s having fun. About the jean freezing… I suppose I get the bacteria part, but what about the basic dust and dirt of life? Hmmm.
