STFU Parents: Giving Thanks For All The Cool Parents
2. Novelist In The Making
The tortured novelist trope is unbearable when referenced without irony, but hysterical when put in this context. Evie is being a good mother, encouraging her child to eat a healthy bran muffin, while also being fully conscious of her own adulthood. She doesn’t deprive herself of something delicious, OR feel any guilt about eating it in front of her daughter. She turned something totally banal into actual comedy. And now her daughter is going to grow up to be the most health-conscious, afflicted artist there ever was. Genius.
