It’s Pumpkin Spice Equinox, Bitches.

Yo, Privileged Guy At The Tennis Courts

This is for you. The other day I was sitting at the tennis courts where my kids were attending a group clinic. I was sitting in the chairs that border the courts. You know, seating for human beings. There were two other mothers there. We were – like – just

The Russians Interfered With My Dog’s Mayoral Campaign (and I couldn’t even make this up if I tried)
