Bossy found this buried in her linen closet a few days ago and it made her laugh senseless. Here’s why: Bossy’s sister-in-law was an actress.
She acted in movies, and she acted on Broadway, and she appeared at least once in every major sitcom and police drama throughout the last decade. Like this:
And especially this:
Bossy’s sister-in-law the actress? Hilarious. And when not making Bossy laugh until her insides emptied, she negotiated Bossy’s entree into the world of upscale beauty regimes.
It was Bossy’s sister-in-law who taught Bossy how to pilfer makeup samples from Bergdorf Goodman, and how to use the Origins store as a place to wash her hands, just like she introduced Bossy to the concept of haircuts with Italian men that cost the equivalent of a plane ticket.
Bossy and her sister-in-law would often meet in New York’s midtown for a day of beauty—which always began with cream puffs and continued through
spring rolls with a couple of shoe acquisitions thrown in for good measure.
Well. It came to pass one summer that this certain sister-in-law met and began a friendship with Jennifer Aniston. And Bossy’s sister-in-law spent some time at Jennifer Aniston’s house. And one of the first things Bossy’s sister-in-law did while visiting Jennifer Aniston, was to throw back Jen’s shower curtain so she could study all of Jennifer Aniston’s hair products and report them directly back to Bossy.
Oh yes she did. And this was the main product she saw:
Which is why, a few months later, standing with her sister-in-law in the aisle of Ricky’s NYC, Bossy filled her cart with the stuff.
Because although Bossy and Jennifer Aniston do not have the same hair texture—or the same anything—Bossy’s sister-in-law reasoned that if this conditioner could keep Jennifer Aniston’s locks from hair dryer ruin, it would certainly be advantageous to a certain someone suffering from frizz.
So Bossy went home and tried the product—which she left on her hair for two entire hours, tucked under a shower cap. And Bossy was so satisfied with the smooth result, she took the following photo for her sister-in-law, as proof of the conditioner’s worth:
Anyway. Bossy found this conditioner the other day while wrestling the alligator that is her linen closet. And it made Bossy laugh because, although her sister-in-law lost her battle with cancer two years ago, giggling over Jennifer Aniston’s hair products would have been precisely what she would have wanted.
Debby saysJune 19, 2008 at 11:43 am
Oh, what a great blog entry. And a great memory of your SIL.
And now when the product flies off the shelf, Bossy is to thank!
JoeInVegas saysJune 19, 2008 at 11:46 am
Darn, you do look good in that photo. (hair’s not bad either) Why did you stop using the stuff?
NylNorahS saysJune 19, 2008 at 11:49 am
Here I was giggling along…then I got all choked up…co-workers think I am manic today…you are amazing…
Velma saysJune 19, 2008 at 11:56 am
That’s an awesome legacy to leave behind, actually.
Ariel saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:00 pm
My brother has been gone 7 years and the best thing we do it laugh and remember the good times 🙂 Such precious memories.
The Mom saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:02 pm
What a nice tribute to SIL!
junebug saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:07 pm
Oh my! I was quite amused until the end. It is good to remember someone with laughter in our heart. Yes.
Jill saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:13 pm
Amazing storytelling. Fantastic post.
Catherine saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:13 pm
So lovely. Anyone that does re-con at Jennifer Aniston’s house had to be a hoot!
Hallie saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:13 pm
Happy, happy, happy – then sad, sad, sad – then happy, sad….
Bet your SIL is laughing right along with you.
Audubon Ron saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:14 pm
The first pic of Bossy, beautiful eyes. I was like, wuuuvvvvaaaawwuuuvv-wo-wo-wo, like that. Powerful.
The second pic, there are Bossy’s nostrils again.
Evolving saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:15 pm
….I think headbands make anyone who wears them look pre-teen. I don’t know why.
I feel sure that Sister in Law is out there laughing too!
Amy @ Milk Breath & Margaritas saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:26 pm
Oh the end of that just crushed me. I’m so sorry. But I’m also buying some of that hair stuff.
Divina saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:30 pm
What love! 🙂
Lauren saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:30 pm
Bossy is beautiful and so are her words
Biddy saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:31 pm
this is probably my favorite bossy post ever.
well, aside from the “if it’s still box shaped, it’s not done”
natalie saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:36 pm
i’m sure bossy’s sister-in-law would have loved that story! and the hair…my goodness…the hair. a head full of awesomeness.
David saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:39 pm
Thanks for that literary equivalent of a kick in the stomach.
“sniff” You’ll pardon me a moment, I have a little dust in my eye is all.
Jacquie saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:39 pm
Oh, what a sad ending to a funny post. Fucking cancer. That is the second time this week I have included those words in a blog comment. Enjoy the memories that linen closet brought up!
Mine is taunting me, its exorcism promises to be blog worthy as well, but probably not at all poignant or clever or, well, interesting.
Asthmagirl saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:45 pm
I use that product and have for years. Even if you leave it on for 2 minutes, it’s amazing. Want to grow your hair out and have it be in great condition? This is the stuff!
Mjohnson saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:47 pm
So I found out my Uncle has cancer today except he’s not my uncle I just used to call him that when we were kids because he’s my Dad’s mate – he’s a really good guy. His family have the worst luck!
Avitable saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:48 pm
Bossy’s posts always tell the most amazing stories.
All Adither saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:49 pm
I’m so sorry about your sister-in-law. You do look kind of like a peppy news anchor in that last pic though. I think I want to go buy some of that stuff.
Christy saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:51 pm
Hm. May have to try that stuff.
What a fantastic tribute-post to your SIL. Sounds like she is someone that you will think about forever.
Sidenote: (Wasn’t she in “The Sponge” episode? She looks too familiar to me.)
andrea saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:54 pm
Laughter is the best way to remember somebody. It’s the type of legacy I definitely would like to leave.
Jami saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:55 pm
Shit! I bet Bossy’s SIL is laughing at Jami’s emotional whiplash right about now. And well she should!
Dharmamama saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:57 pm
Sweet remembrance. And see? Your SIL is *still* making us all laugh.
whiticism saysJune 19, 2008 at 12:59 pm
i read years ago that jennifer aniston used kerastase and immediately started ordering it online also! now i am sad that i can no longer justify $30 shampoo and conditioner.
boomama saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:02 pm
Love this post a million times.
And yay for funny sisters-in-law. They make everything better. Including memories.
gala saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:04 pm
your SIL and my friend planet – same thing. gone too soon (for same reason), still makes me laugh today – esp when i get the equivalent of your kerastase moment.
Foolery saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:12 pm
Anyone who would have the presence of mind and the GUTS to snoop out hair products must have lived a very full and vivid life. It’s shared memories like this one that keep her life very present and vivid. Thanks, Miss Bossy.
blackbird saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:16 pm
Aw, Bossy got me with that one.
The Domestic Goddess saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:21 pm
I love that your SIL had the cajones to sneak a peek in J. An’s bathtub. But I gotta know. Did she have a hair-ball creature in her drain?
Mrs. G. saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:21 pm
Could Bossy be any sweeter?
Laura saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:29 pm
Oh Bossy, I am so sorry about your sister in law. What a great post and as always, I am amazed at your very talented and intersting family! BTW, I absolutely adore Jennifer Aniston-she is my favorite actress. Wow, I am still amazed at this story!
Momo Fali saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:35 pm
Would she want me to choke back tears? Huh? Would she? Bossy’s turning into M. Night Shyamalan with her writing. That darn twist ending doesn’t mix well with my PMS.
SparklieSunShine saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:38 pm
Very humorous post. I wasn’t prepared for the ending. That sniffling sound you hear, so not me.
🙁 Fuck cancer.
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:39 pm
Bossy has the best family.
Mrs. Chicken saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:43 pm
Best story I’ve heard in a very long time. It’s good when you can remember the good times again, no? I’m getting there myself.
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:46 pm
Even though I love everything you ever write, I might just love this the most.
Lara saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:46 pm
Awww…what a sweet tribute. I’m so sorry that you’re missing her, but how wonderful that you are able to laugh about fun times with her. You are not only a good sis-in-law, but a good wife for loving your Hubby’s sis so much. I actually remember her from “Friends with Money”.
Hotdog saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:47 pm
that stuff looks expensive. anything i can’t pronounce is expensive.
bossy’s sister in law looks like she was a nice person. :o}
corrie saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:58 pm
I hope Bossy put that conditioner right back where she found it, so she can discover it again in another couple of years.
Noelle saysJune 19, 2008 at 1:58 pm
Oh man, the ending of this blog post was way too sad.
so NOT cool saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:04 pm
Last week, I saw a lady cleaning her ears with the make-up q-tips at Whole Foods. Friend of your SIL’s?
working mom saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:07 pm
BOSSY. My hair thanks you & your dearly departed SIL for sharing J.A.’s hair secrets.
Isn’t it so much better to laugh instead of cry when we think of them? Especially when you know they would do the same.
working mom saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:09 pm
P.S. Bossy kind of resembles Sharon Stone in that mirror SP.
meleah rebeccah saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:11 pm
Dood! I want that conditioner!!
Ellie saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:12 pm
I love your sister-in-law. Having met her this very second. I love that all your peeps (if I may be so bold) are all thinking about her today. Lovely.
kKelly S. saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:14 pm
I’m pretty new to your blog, but WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE…I laughed so hard at your cute post and your sweet sister in law. THANK YOU for sharing. You SIL’s legacy is that hundreds will have good hair now, because of her SNOOPING. 🙂
Hope Jen isn’t reading the blog. HI JEN!
DCM saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:19 pm
Oh my goodness – just looked up your S-I-L. She died on the exact same day as my dad did, 8/4/05. My sympathies. Sweet, funny post for her today!
Cathy saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:20 pm
It’s amazing what makes us think of someone, isn’t it?
Glad you found it and glad you had some giggles over it!
Sass E-mum saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:31 pm
I love the thought of your sister in law snooping through Jen’s bathroom cabinet.
Hasn’t everyone had a Jen A hair moment?
I’m doing a sponsored run for Cancer Research this Sunday – Race for Life… I was running… to fit into a bikini… and to remember a friend… but I’ll take a moment to run for your sister too.
MP saysJune 19, 2008 at 2:43 pm
Your SIL does look familiar, since I am a television addict I’m sure I’ve seen her in things. I’m very pissed off the cancer took her SO very young. Bossy and Bossy’s Sister In Law are 21 in the above photo, aren’t you?
carrie saysJune 19, 2008 at 3:12 pm
Your SIL sounds amazing, what a wonderful friend. I am all over that conditioner, must find some.
Ms. Karen saysJune 19, 2008 at 3:15 pm
That was beautiful. When laughter sparks good memories, it is a blessing.
At least now we know how beautiful hair happens to the beautiful people. It involves guts to peek in their showers.
She obviously rocked.
Nicole saysJune 19, 2008 at 3:29 pm
So impressed by your hair, I went to drugstore.com to scope it out- $52?!?!?!
I may have to find my own celebrity friend just to steal expensive haircare items out of their shower.
Kristina saysJune 19, 2008 at 3:42 pm
Ok, thanks for making me have an ugly cry! I lost my dad to cancer a year and a half ago and his 65th birthday would have been this past Monday. But thanks for the advice on the conditioner. My hair sucks!
surcie saysJune 19, 2008 at 3:45 pm
Dude, you caught me totally off guard. This is so sweet. And funny.
And could you please be my sister-in-law? We could pretend?
I’ve never used that particular product, but I do use their shampoo. Tarjay carries their stuff!
Suzy saysJune 19, 2008 at 4:00 pm
No fair ending that story with how you ended it. I’m already in a crap mood.
Crabby McSlacker saysJune 19, 2008 at 4:05 pm
Damnit, I didn’t see that coming and it made me cry.
(I hate to cry in the middle of the day. Night time, fine, but not in broad daylight).
Anyway, great tribute. She sounds like she was really quite special.
Anniemom saysJune 19, 2008 at 4:21 pm
Can’t wait to get some of that stuff. And the end of your post? Gasp, beautiful. Still kind of shell shocked, and loving the tribute… thanks.
Kristin saysJune 19, 2008 at 4:27 pm
Bossy is so lucky, just to get to be Bossy. I’d have to agree with another commenter, that this is one of my favorite posts. And leave it to bossy to be all happy and funny and then all sad and sweet at the end.
Eloise saysJune 19, 2008 at 4:35 pm
I’m so sorry about your sister-in-law. She just radiates life and laughter from those pictures.
HeyJoe saysJune 19, 2008 at 4:42 pm
OK, kind of a buzz kill ending. Um…yea.
Now is that picture of you at the bottom the BEFORE or the AFTER? You’re looking svelte and all but I’m not liking the hair.
Sorry. Joe can’t lie. Well that’s a lie, he can actually lie quite well, better than he would like, he just chose not to now because he knows Bossy can take it.
You’re not crying are you?
that girl saysJune 19, 2008 at 5:13 pm
Not nice! Made me cry! Your hair looks nice, though.
Mr Farty saysJune 19, 2008 at 5:17 pm
BOSSY writes the best tributes.
Fiesty Charlie saysJune 19, 2008 at 5:18 pm
What a great blog! I am sorry she lost her battle, but you have to know she was right there with you when you found it.
I believe laughter is the best way to talk to our angels, and what a great giggle the two of you shared over hair care products.
Thanks for sharing Bossy! I can always count on getting something on your site when I stop by, every day….
BTW, you are smoking hot, just as you are!!
Hattie saysJune 19, 2008 at 5:51 pm
Wow it’s a sad world. But I love your blog. And be assured, Bossy, that no matter how old you think you look, you look way younger than me!
Madness saysJune 19, 2008 at 5:56 pm
Ditto to what Jill said
Amazing storytelling. Fantastic post.
Theres a reason Madness hearts Bossy.
This is it.
Shayera saysJune 19, 2008 at 6:06 pm
That’s a lovely remembrance of your sister in law.
Stupid darn cancer.
Sparx saysJune 19, 2008 at 6:32 pm
Ack, sorry, great post. Great hair, great sister in law. Shame about the ending, here’s thinking about you.
Andrea @ Sweet Life saysJune 19, 2008 at 7:04 pm
What a wonderful tribute to someone who was obviously a huge part of the family. So glad you could remember her and laugh today!
Swistle saysJune 19, 2008 at 7:35 pm
You made me actually let out a STRANGLED SOB at the end of that post.
Kelly Stern saysJune 19, 2008 at 7:45 pm
awwwww… I love you in the red shirt!! Sassy!!!
Blueturtle saysJune 19, 2008 at 8:03 pm
Bossy, what’s uncanny is the resemblence between your SIL and my friend who passed away five years ago — of cancer. It’s the kinds of memories you shared that keep our loved ones alive in our hearts! Thanks for sharing.
Manic Mommy saysJune 19, 2008 at 8:53 pm
Bossy, that was one of your best.
Bossy's Friend Martha's Sister saysJune 19, 2008 at 9:14 pm
3rd rock from the sun… too cool…
a toast to bossy’s sister-in-law, cheers! ! Peace
Ree (the Other one) saysJune 19, 2008 at 9:44 pm
Bossy’s SIL (I’m so sorry she’s not with us anymore) was in MY favorite show ever? With John Lithgow?
(And Bossy is much cuter than Jennifer Aniston)
Chicky Chicky Baby saysJune 19, 2008 at 10:03 pm
Oof, that last part made my heart hurt.
And you are still smokin’ hot, fer chrissake.
g saysJune 19, 2008 at 10:31 pm
What a wonderful memory of your sister-in-law! It’s very touching and warm.
And isn’t it funny, the things that remind of most strongly of those who are gone – hair conditioner!!
A Whole Lot of Nothing saysJune 19, 2008 at 10:42 pm
Long live your SIL through expensive celebrity hair care!
Stephanie saysJune 19, 2008 at 10:53 pm
This post made me laugh out loud. It also made me think of my hilarious mom, who also lost her battle with cancer at the very young age of 46…she died almost three years ago.
She reminds me a great deal of your SIL. Both hilarious, wonderful women who are probably still cracking up today.
And as a side note, is it just me, or am I the only one who thought of Jennifer Aniston in the movie “Friends with Money,” pilfering the makeup samples at department stores, when you mentioned your SIL at Bergdorf’s?
Lisa saysJune 19, 2008 at 11:46 pm
Im with SparkleySunshine..
sorry bossy, happy you can remember funny times. Still sorry. I know how it feels.
Beth from the Funny Farm saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:02 am
Wonderfully funny story about your SIL.
Johanna in NZ saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:40 am
My beloved crazy beautiful 73-year old grandmother died suddenly this week. Thanks for the reminder to remember with laughter not just tears. 🙂
Mindy saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:41 am
This was so well written. I teared up and everything. Would you please tell me your SIL’s name? She looks so familiar to me and I’m being driven mad trying to think what characters she played. Is this too personal of a request?
Dawn saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:50 am
That was absolutely beautiful.
kate saysJune 20, 2008 at 1:05 am
i bet she couldn’t have hoped for anything better. and i think you should put that jar under your sink, or in the closet under your stairs or someplace like that, so that two years from today, you will laugh again.
Mitch McDad saysJune 20, 2008 at 2:15 am
I’m so fired up that I finally know what JA uses on her hair. Tomorrow I’m running right out to Walgreens to get some for myself.
Sara saysJune 20, 2008 at 2:17 am
Oh. Oh. I’m so sorry, but what a skillful way to tell that story, really. Very…real. Thanks for this.
manager mom saysJune 20, 2008 at 6:24 am
What a great tribute to a sister in law and friend. You got me, Bossy. I am going soft, feeling all of these “emotions”!
Carrie saysJune 20, 2008 at 7:23 am
Just wow. Delurking to say that your lovely memories touched me, and I’m sure you’re right, that’s exactly what she would have wanted.
Katy saysJune 20, 2008 at 7:48 am
Crap! I had a chuckle all ready to fly, then I cried. But it’s OK. Truvy says, “Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.” I tend to agree…
Mandy saysJune 20, 2008 at 8:30 am
First: Love the hair
Second: Jennifer Aniston? SHUT UP! Love.Her.
Third: So sorry about your sister-in-law, but those little moments where you find them in the strangest places is what it’s all about.
Dara saysJune 20, 2008 at 8:52 am
what a wonderfully sad story.
erin saysJune 20, 2008 at 9:20 am
This is so sweet and funny. I love your sister-in-law, and so glad you have these kind of memories to keep her alive.
The Cheap Chick saysJune 20, 2008 at 9:57 am
Now that is a loving tribute! (She types while sniffling and sobbing over here in MN). In honor of your SIL, I think you should treat yourself to a cream puff AND spring rolls AND an obscenely expensive haircut.
Also? Nothing has ever made me want to buy an expensive hair care product before this post. Now all I want is that Kerastase goo. Seriously, that company should give you a billion dollars. Oooo! Which you could spend on cream puffs and spring rolls and SHOES.
I’m glad you have such amazing memories of an obviously AWESOME person.
Paola saysJune 20, 2008 at 10:19 am
This was a great tribute to your SIL.
hicky saysJune 20, 2008 at 10:33 am
great post, boss. and don’t front, you always look good!
davido saysJune 20, 2008 at 10:43 am
Jen, you look mahvelous. Very sorry to hear about SIL though, a wonderful tribute.
Ashley saysJune 20, 2008 at 10:47 am
this was a great story.
and oddly enough, i LOVED IG’s character on 3rd rock…she reminded me of someone i knew. who knew bossy was related to her? ah, what a small world.
The Other Laura saysJune 20, 2008 at 11:39 am
I am beginning to suspect that Bossy is doing a late spring cleaning and we are reaping he benefits.
Mindy saysJune 20, 2008 at 11:55 am
I’ve been dealing with insomnia for awhile now and it came to me at 3:00 a.m. where I had seen her before. I remembered her from 3rd Rock from the Sun. She was wonderful.
AmberStar saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:04 pm
What a wonderful memory and tribute to your sister in law. I can’t think of a better way to be remembered and I hope my sister will remember me like that.
HeyJoe saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:28 pm
Man, buzz kill of an ending.
Is that picture the BEFORE or AFTER shot? While you are certainly svelte, the hair isn’t doing it for me. Nope, nope, nope.
I critisize from a place of love because I think Bossy can take it.
You’re not crying are you? Damnit, I’m such a JACKASS.
Motherofbun saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:32 pm
Sounds like she was a very fun, fabulous sis-in-law. And she’s so pretty too.
And I’m so sorry for your loss. But it sounds like she’s with you in spirit. And maybe that was her way of saying “Hi. I’m still here.” (Course maybe that’s her way of saying, “Bossy. Your hair is a mess.”) Or maybe its all just coincidence. I guess that depends upon your own beliefs.
Andrea's Sweet Life saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:37 pm
You know what goes great with Jeneefer Aneeston hair? FREE CHOCOLATE!
Enter to win some over at my place…
Ellen saysJune 20, 2008 at 12:49 pm
I swore off expensive hair care products a few months ago but it looks like that stuff WORKS. Hmmm… A totally bittersweet post. I’m so sorry about your sister-in-law.
Anjali saysJune 20, 2008 at 1:52 pm
Oh, Bossy. What a lovely story and a lovely sister-n-law. I hope where ever she is, her hair is shiny and manageable.
stella saysJune 20, 2008 at 1:54 pm
I know this was intended to be uplifting…
but wow, im really sad all the sudden. you and your husband must miss her. she looks like she was full of lightness!
The Modern Gal saysJune 20, 2008 at 5:13 pm
I had no idea that’s where you were going with that “nothing” story, but I loved it. I’m sure your SIL loved it too.
amyinbc saysJune 21, 2008 at 1:19 am
So sad… Great post.. Just wish your SIL could have read it..
merlotmom saysJune 21, 2008 at 2:24 am
Not a quick nothing at all – that post was a big something! Sorry about your SIL. Beautiful post.
erin saysJune 21, 2008 at 2:22 pm
Which Seinfeld episode???????????????????????
amanda saysJune 21, 2008 at 7:37 pm
What a thing to still have friends laughing two years after you’ve gone…
texasgurl saysJune 23, 2008 at 2:40 pm
bossy, ouch. I’m reading along, enjoying a story about hair products and jennifer aniston, totally starting to dig on your cool SIL, feeling your pain over the aging thing, and then you sucker-punch me with “she lost her battle with cancer . . .” You almost made me cry, dammit.
Heather saysJune 23, 2008 at 5:02 pm
Your sister-in-law cracked me up as the “modeling agent” on That 70s Show. Hilarious woman.
Christine saysJune 23, 2008 at 11:49 pm
what a beautiful post. Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion.
Amanda saysJune 24, 2008 at 12:39 pm
Thank you for sharing your sister-in-law with us!
supertiff saysJune 24, 2008 at 10:38 pm
i’ve come back and re-read this 5x now, and i haven’t been sure of what to say. so, i’ll just say this: your ability to share a story amazes me more and more every day.
i can’t think of anything to say about the loss of your sister-in-law that would be worth a darn, so i;ll just point out that you are a very talented lady.
i bet your sister-in-law knew it, too.
mn saysJune 24, 2008 at 11:29 pm
on behalf of all women who suffer from frizz/flyaway/ stupid hair no matter how much conditioner is used- i thank your sister in law.
frizz is my arch enemy.
i will save up to buy this stuff.
that must have been a fun friendship. and i am sorry your husband had to go through the loss of a sibling. that is indeed hard.
PS, you’re so slender.
