Your day starts out like any other. Routine. A jammed pinky toe in the door jam. Missing socks. Baby food on your new work blouse. Luke-warm coffee. Empty gas tank. Near death by lego.
You open your Facebook to scroll through the mom groups, as you're so apt to do when you need a break from real life, and behold! A CONTROVERSIAL POST. Yaaaaaaaay! You PM your ladies, like any respectable and good friend would do. The stress of the day leaves your body and you prepare to bunker down and wade through the 171 comments. To be safe, you select "get notifications" so that you don't miss another bite.
I have a confession.
I was raised in a Republican household. As an adult, I do not vote Republican.
Now, I don't write this to insult your politics, faith, or whatever else you hold dear. I write this because I wish I had known these things far sooner than I did.
