I love a freshly manicured hand. It just makes me feel a bit . . . fancy. Put together. I've always been kind of a girly girl. But you know what really irks me? When I spend an hour painting...
I have to admit that I didn't get it. In the past year, I've seen an increased use of gender pronouns in Zoom calls, email signature lines, and social media. She/Her/Hers, He/Him/His, They/Them/Theirs They are all familiar words, but I had...
