The Chop

and you’ve convinced yourself that, because enough celebrities are pulling off bangs, you can, too.

 

 

One night—high from having delivered an amazing virtual toast at a Zoom wedding, and furious at the fact that a wedding is no longer a viable place to meet eligible friends of friends’ new spouses’ friends (and doubly furious that you sound like a character from a Jane Austen novel)—you are finally, like, “YOLO!”

Society is fixed, because people have finally learned to respect one another as human beings. Good job!
