@janehas well, they kind of are asking her to do that with the upcoming national public holiday…
My sister had weight loss surgery and I noted that it’s not the easy way out by any means - at least, not in her case and it still took quite some time. She also wanted to have children, and she couldn’t carry a baby at her previous weight.
@daijobou I think you’re right - which I feel makes it worse because it was really about him, not her.
The joke was in poor taste but sadly that’s been overshadowed by the violent reaction.
@rush I feel the same about her. Am also starting to admire her persistence.
Curious to see how it works. And also - would love to know how an HR generalist was given the gig of launching Bumble into a new market. It’s a massive leap, so how did she sell it?
@thunder it’s true, two wrongs don’t make a right.
@olga plain rude like the PM who openly turns his back and plays with his phone while women speak in parliament? The PM who refused to shake Bill shortens hand in the last election campaign? The PM who turned his head away from a distraught bushfire victim when he didn’t like the question being asked?
@shauna020473 100% this! He - and others like him - do this kind of thing all the time and nothing happens. But a young female dies it, and cue outrage.
I agree, seeing what 56 looks like is refreshing and I wish we saw more of it so we could normalise ageing.
Judging by my walks around my suburb and nearby beaches, lots of kids have been spending time with their ‘friend bubbles’ this whole time…
@hopey my thoughts exactly
@rush all questions I thought of too. 3 nights is a long time for anyone to be out in the bush, let along a small child. I really hope there was nothing sinister behind it and it was a genuine case of him being lost in the bush.
Does anyone on this list have young kids and work? Sleeping in? Meeting friends at the park for exercise? Daily uninterrupted exercise zoom sessions as soon as you wake up? Ha. I wish.
@cat yes! I’ve often thought about them too. It’s such a unique and special time in your life that you never get back, and shape you for years to come.
@mamamia-user-482898552 it’s the hyper curation that kills it. It seems they both mean well, but just miss the mark almost every time.
I can’t believe not bathing your kids every day is a thing. They go to school or daycare or play sport and all the rest - why would you want to bring all those germs to bed?
I’m also 40 and my friends have also mostly dropped away.
@mamamia-user-43186868 exactly. And the privilege continues as everyone involved - and the media - sweep it under the rug.
