By this time, you may have watched “Tiger King” so many times that you’re starting to think Carol Baskin DIDN’T kill her husband. But otherwise, you’re doing okay. Don’t complain that they cancelled the Met Gala when you post a photo of yourself by the pool. It’s tasteless.

You may be on your sixth box of Thin Mints today. You may be on your fourth beer. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us.

Have some wine. Have some more. Wipe the Pop-Tart crumbs out of your hair, burn all your dress pants (it’s not like we live in a society where we’ll ever need those again), and complain all you want.
