Is it even?

If a preg­nant wo­man doesn’t wear Bre­ton stripes, is she even a preg­nant wo­man? If Si­mon Sweet­man doesn’t hate the lat­est amaz­ing chanteuse, is he even Si­mon Sweet­man? If a celebrity hair­styl­ist can’t sell you co­caine, is he even a celebrity hair stylist? If there’s no hes­sian bunting, did you even get mar­ried? If the ma­genta mile is now mil­len­nial pink, is it even for mamils any more? If Colin Craig doesn’t sue you, do you even ex­ist?

Un­paid work: lit­tle jobs par­ents should be paid for

Fish­ing fid­get spin­ners out of storm drains, couches and the dog. Rins­ing the ants off the mar­malade be­fore any­one sees them and tear­fully in­sists they be re­leased into the back­yard. Pal­lia­tive care for the gar­den they promised they’d tend if you let them buy car­rot seeds. Be­ing hon­est enough at the pool to re­port your own kid’s Code Brown. At­tend­ing a Satur­day sports field with­out a coffee car­a­van. Ex­plain­ing the Gay Babadook meme with­out ac­tu­ally let­ting them see The Babadook.

Why Does Love Do This To Me? Colin Craig’s Great­est Hits. Don’t Dream It’s Over: A Hymn to the Water­view Tun­nel Con­struc­tion. Not Given Lightly: An­them of the Liv­ing Wage.

Tiny houses: think small to get four walls

A shop­ping trol­ley filled with all your worldly pos­ses­sions, cov­ered by a Ware­house minky blan­ket: sure, it’s been done, but think of the con­ve­nience. The en­suite: a camp cooker bal­anced on the cis­tern makes this a charm­ing, af­ford­able unit for pro­fes­sional cou­ples. Un­der an­other house: a dirt floor is the lat­est in boho-chic and bend­ing over is ba­si­cally Pi­lates. A chilly­bin: it’s in­su­lated; don’t be so fussy. Wheelie bin: a por­ta­ble one­room apart­ment. Lie it down for sleep­ing, stand it up for stand­ing up. Comes com­plete with a win­dow/bal­cony/lid.
