I love soup. I love letters.
I do NOT love THIS confuzzlement. Wanna know why?
Look at all of those abbreviations…can you spot the FIRST problem with this recipe? EVERY ONE contains the letter “D.” For Disorder. There are more boy babies born than girls every year. But does anyone greet the new bundle in pink with the words, “Wow! A girl! How abnormal!” Normal and topical aren’t synonyms. Which means that just because it’s less typical, our bodies are our very-legitimate version of normal.
What we are NOT is disordered. So all those “d’s”? Someone get me a colander.
They’ve gotta go.
