YouTube university is so great. We had to get our rings remade and then we got wedding rings and they came back a size too small. I googled how to resize a ring at home, bought the tools and did it!!!! I resized four rings! Very exciting.

I am grateful to all who do the job but the relief I feel when a woman is assigned as the Instacart shopper, whew.

Why is Annie Liebovitz incapable of photographing black people? If you ever see her pointing her camera in the direction of a black person, slap it out of her hands or step between her lens and the person. Be the change.

Happy happy birthday to  @xTx, a bright ray of sunshine, fabulous writer and dearest friend.

In this week's Work Friend, I counsel people looking to address past social media bigotry, a woman being forced to parent her staff, and mandatory fun involving Caucasian-ish activities: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/10/business/social-media-stupidity.html
