I saw a band last month called Masked Intruder. These cats were on stage with color coordinated masks/instruments and for some reason, I start thinking them as the cast of Voltron. And I'm conflicted because Pidge would be too smol to be playing guitar.
there are no people too small or instruments too big
i was hanging out with a straight friend yesterday and she was like “idk!! it’s so easy to talk to girls for me but i just don’t know how to talk to guys even if i’m not interested in them! is that a sexuality thing? is it easier for you to talk to guys than girls?” and i said “oh man i don’t know. i don’t know how to talk to anyone” MOSTLY as a joke but then she nodded so seriously and said “oh right i don’t know why i asked you haha” which i can’t even be mad about because damn…. she told me nothing but the truth
