Tavi’s “Rookie Mag” is super cute. and makes me miss being a teenager. kinda.
“romance is when maybe you accidentally spill your water all over the sheets and feel stupid. It happens when you trip over your words, or a crack in the sidewalk, and you blush and feel embarrassed and vulnerable and the guy or girl you like still likes you anyway. Actually, it makes them want to kiss you more. Then you feel crazy rushing feelings in the pit of your stomach that you don’t know how to explain. That feeling is actually butterflies having sex with other butterflies; it’s a scientific fact. and you can’t sell it, but a bit of it taken out of contest can be used to sell something else.”
Does Romance Sell? (question submitted by reader)
Deeper meaning resides in the fairy tales
told to me in my childhood than in the
truth that is taught by life.
—Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805)
