People always make Juliet out to be dumb in Romeo and Juliet, but I think she at least had some sense where Romeo didn't have much of any

  • Romeo:

    I was thinking about this chick earlier who I said I was in love with but now I love that girl over there that is very likely to either belong to my family's enemy or be close with my family's enemy as it is their party I am crashing

  • Juliet:

    I do not like being so young and forced into a relationship with an older man, but oh there's a cute guy more my age over there. And since he's here he must have been invited and is there for a reasonable love match for myself

  • --

  • Romeo:

    We should kiss right now at this party

  • Juliet:

    No that is a super dumb idea

  • Romeo:

    *kisses her anyway*

  • Juliet:

    That was dumb of you

  • --

  • Romeo:

    We should get married right now

  • Juliet:

    We don't know each other. Shouldn't we wait until at least a little time has passed?

  • Romeo:

    Like tomorrow?

  • Juliet:

    Sure, fine.

  • --

  • Juliet:

    We're married now, so we have to try and make things better between our families.

  • Romeo:

    Right.

  • Romeo:

    It seems I have killed your cousin and am now exiled.

  • --

  • Juliet:

    Ok so since Romeo fucked up I'm gonna fix this shit by taking a harmless sleeping liquid. He'll come and get me and we can go away together.

  • Romeo:

    *immediately kills himself*

  • Juliet:

    For fucks sake.

Cakes have gotten a bad rap. People equate virtue with turning down dessert. There is always one person at the table who holds up her hand when I serve the cake. No, really, I couldn’t she says, and then gives her flat stomach a conspiratorial little pat. Everyone who is pressing a fork into that first tender layer looks at the person who declined the plate, and they all think, That person is better than I am. That person has discipline. But that isn’t a person with discipline; that is a person who has completely lost touch with joy. A slice of cake never made anybody fat. You don’t eat the whole cake. You don’t eat a cake every day of your life. You take the cake when it is offered because the cake is delicious. You have a slice of cake and what it reminds you of is someplace that’s safe, uncomplicated, without stress. A cake is a party, a birthday, a wedding. A cake is what’s served on the happiest days of your life. This is a story of how my life was saved by cake, so, of course, if sides are to be taken, I will always take the side of cake.
