Best of P-Mag: Do You Use the Smell Test?

This post has stuck with me for some reason. It pops into my head every time I smell a jug of milk before using it. It also gave me a solid base of information to use when I must explain to my children that they can still eat something, even if it is past the sell-by date. Mostly, though, I think it’s fun and it comforts me to know that I’m not the only one. –SaraB Read More Best of P-Mag: Do You Use the Smell Test?

Best of P-Mag: Being a Good Hostess

I loved Morbid Curiosity. This one does not have any bizarre foods to try, instead Jen L. Disarray gave us her interpretation of the Better Homes and Gardens’ advice on “Being a Good Hostess.” If you can get as far as “If that bitch Helen tries to start something with me, I’m going to fill her martini glass with french dressing,” without laughing, I’ll give you a dollar. –SaraB Read More Best of P-Mag: Being a Good Hostess

Best of P-Mag: That Hijab Thing

I am a big fan of getting both sides of the story. Likewise, I try very hard not to judge anything I don’t really know about. It is hard for a woman who has never worn one to see a hijab and not judge. Here, Olivia gives us a look “behind the veil.” Do I think women should be forced to cover their faces? No, but this post made me see that the veil in the same light as stay-at-home mothers. There is a very important difference between telling a woman that she doesn’t have to do something because she is a woman, and telling her she can’t do something if she wants to be a feminist. –SaraB Read More Best of P-Mag: That Hijab Thing
