The Bloggess on Sex with Bears and Apologies


Jenny Lawson put up a post yesterday – Worst Advice Ever

Last week my friend said that her mom’s greatest piece of advice was “Do one thing every day that scares you” and I told her that was terrible advice because you know what scares me?  Bears.  I’m not going to do a bear, lady.  I don’t even think that’s legal in Texas.

Long story short?  I think my friend’s mom is trying to kill me.

UPDATED:  Hang on.  I just realized that technically having sex with a bear would be extremely terrifying and would probably make you appreciate the rest of your fragile life.  A life where you don’t have to have sex with dangerous, bitey bears.

So I guess there’s some actual advice in there after all.  Not good advice.  But still.

When she posted on Facebook, she added “Don’t have sex with bears, you guys.”

I couldn’t help myself in my comment as I posted the first thing that came into my head. Then I thought “You just channeled your inner 12 year old. Your very perverted inner 12 year old. Perhaps that was a bit out of line. Offer an apology.” So I commented with that as well.

When I looked at the post today, I found a comment from Jenny. I ❤ her very muchly.
