As Jeremy and I were
watching crying through The Help last night, I started thinking about all the reasons it resonated with us.
For starters, we can all relate to Skeeter Phelan. As someone whose frizzy hair presents myriad obstacles in life, I can empathize. And when her family is convinced she’s a lesbian, I mean, we’ve all been there, right? (RIGHT?! Maybe that’s just me…) Not to mention she looks SO badass rippin’ cigs and writing on her typewriter. I’m sure that’s exactly how I look when I work on this blog.
Second, we’ve all had to deal with someone like
Regina George Hilly Holbrook in our lives.
