A woman drinks tea, 1940, in the aftermath of a German bombing raid during the London Blitz
My grandmother used to refuse to go down to the shelter with her family during air raids and insisted on staying in the house because “Hitler wasn’t going to tell her what to do”
I remember in year 2 there was a girl who had literally never had a haircut so her hair was ridiculously long [imagine Rapunzel basically] and she always complained about it but her mum wouldn’t let her get it cut
So one day at recess she put an entire pack of chewed gum in her hair at the exact length she wanted it cut to.
She came in the next day with her hair cut how she wanted it and a smug grin on her face and I knew that that girl was going places.
I sometimes get accidentally emotional about Petunia Dursley. When you watch her give her mini speech about how Lily was a witch, there seems to be a lot of forced conviction behind her disgust. She started off biting but then her resolve slightly weakened and the more she talked about Lily, and the closer she got to bringing up the fact that her sister was murdered, the more Petunia looked like she wanted to cry. But she couldn’t cry, not with Vernon around. How would it look to him if she admitted with her tears that she deeply missed her “freaky” sister?
Hookworm eggs. Canine hookworms can infect humans, but instead of going to the GI tract like human hookworms do, they get lost because they’re in the wrong host and cause cutaneous larval migrans, commonly known as “creeping eruption.” Just another reason to make sure your dogs are dewormed regularly.

Top Text: “Please”

One of my biggest pet peeves is people who don’t respond when I say hello and just blurt their order.
I’m not asking for a conversation! I’m not even asking for small talk! Literally all I want is one extra word! “Hi, can I get ___?” Even “Hi, ___ please” will do! One syllable! One teeny little syllable is all it takes to acknowledge that a human has greeted you!
Chicken teriyaki is not an appropriate response to hello.
Making flatbread is ridiculously easy and very rewarding.
It’s a versatile food—pretty much everything is good on flatbread— and if you don’t want to buy those $3-5 loaves in plastic bags from the supermarket anymore, making your own bread is a great way to save some money…
