help these kids out

Alright friends, I could use some help. 

How do you write out a sneeze? I’ve seen things from a simple “ah-choo” to an almost-random string of letters to sound out the actual noise, filled with apostrophes and the like. Is there a nice middle ground? Is the string of letters different every time? Is there a certain MLA format I have to follow?

I’ve always just written out “so and so sneezed” rather than the actual sound, but I want to expand my horizons.

Okay this killed me but: imagine your older kids, like 5 to 10 year olds helping out when Daddy is sick. Warren is definitely a big whiny birb when he's sick so he wouldn't let you leave his side, but then his little one comes with a bowl of soup where they just took a packet of ramen, poured the whole thing into a bowl & added water "Here Daddy, Mommy always makes me soup when I'm sick" & he just cries because he has such a sweet kid. Alex would be the opposite he'd be a grouch when he's (1/2)

sick he wouldn’t want anyone near him because he doesn’t want to get you guys sick but the second his kid gives him his favorite toy to help him feel better, he just melts “Come here buddy” “Eww Daddy noooo you’re too hot!!” Peter would be the neediest & whiniest of all the responsible dads when he’s sick. The second he sneezes, you can’t leave his side because all he wants is lots & lots of snuggles & forehead kisses & your special tea. When his kids are sick, he’ll kiss their forehead to check their temperature & then they’ll kiss his nose. One day, after Peter tossed & turned all night & couldn’t sleep & kept you up as well, he had his head on your chest as you ran your fingers through his hair & hummed one of his favorite songs to him until you both fell asleep. Peter wakes up a little while later to his kid sitting next to them in bed “What are you doing here?” he’ll ask with a smile & then his kid will lean over, kiss his forehead, then his nose “I’m checking your temperature Daddy” & you wake up to Peter sobbing “Sweetie why is Daddy crying?” “I don’t know Mommy all I did was check his temperature” & you just sigh & smile faintly because you know why

i am fucking speechless i am crying i am dying i cannot deal with this i just can’t the level of purity and beauty WENT THROUGH THE GODDAMN ROOF


on hello counselor, the concern of the wife was that her husband restricts her from going out and bosses her around in the house, even the simplest task such as squeezing out toothpaste. the wife also noticed her two sons becoming similar to her husband (asking her to get water for them, etc.)


Merry Christmas!! The zine these drawings were originally meant for kind of fell through so I decided to post them today as a gift to you all instead. The theme was about giving kindness and helping out the community, what better time to share them than the holiday season!

Out of all of them, the Marinette and Alya one is my favorite. Which do you guys like best? :)


I could’ve been a contender. You’re still a contender. Oh yeah? I’m broke, busted, beggared. I have no apartment, no car; hell, my license expired 3 months ago. Get outta here.

Trump’s nuts roasting on an open fire
as he keeps nipping at his foes.
you’ll cry creepy uncle
every time he arrives
for he keeps clawing at your clothes
everybody knows some money and entitlement
can help to make the season white
mothers of color with their kids out of sight
will find it hard to sleep at night.

They know that truuump is on his way.
he’s got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh
and every working man is going to cry
when they learn that Letch don’t care how you live or if you die

Sooo I’m offering this simple phrase
to kids from 1 to 92
although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Donald Trump, fuck you


not one BLM sign, not one “SAVE THE REFUGEES” sigh, not one “Anti-death penalty” sign, not one “STOP RAPE NOW” sign, not one “END POLICE BRUTALITY” sign, not one “DO NOT REPEAL THE ACA” sign, not one “ANTI-WAR” sign, not one donation table to help pregnant women in poverty, not one foundation to help out abused kids in foster care, not one person who actually shows an ounce of fucks to give when it comes to “Matching for Life”,, I would usually say that it’s okay so be pro-life as long as you don’t judge what other people do but at this point imma just deliver a big FUCK YOU to all these people who are so obsessed with decisions that aren’t even their damn business in the first place 

linguistics is political

linguistics is believing that everyone’s ways of talking are cognitively equal and are worthy of study
linguistics is accepting language change, accepting slang, accepting stigmatized groups of people
linguistics is caring scientifically about all the peoples of the world enough to want to document them but caring emotionally about them enough to know when they want to be left alone
linguistics is trying to communicate, trying to learn how we communicate
linguistics is understanding that across languages and cultures, our surface structure might be different but a lot of our deep structure is the same
linguistics is documenting the amazing ways the deaf/hard of hearing community has come together
linguistics is helping kids with learning disabilities figure out how to learn language skills in ways that work for them
linguistics is figuring out how to learn second languages better to bridge cultural gaps
linguistics is political.

Yurabek Headcanons U Totally Wanted

- Otabek h a t e s social media so much and yet he follows Yuri on instagram and twitter because he’s been fascinated by this boy since /forever/ and he likes checking up on Yuri’s progress 

- Its while flipping through Yuri’s insta/etc. that Otabek starts to notice that Yuri doesn’t seem to have any friends, really. And the kid’s fans are freaking crazy 

- So when they finally meet again at the grand prix Otabek has freaking practiced his “be my friend” speech in the mirror and he’s so ready to help this kid out because Yuri deserves better

- Hence, the motorcycle rescue 

- Otabek starts observing how people treat Yuri and he’s lowkey pissed because why the frick do people underestimate this kid?? Also why is Yuri treated like something fragile Yuri is strong AF 

- Otabek totally goes off on the next person who is an asshole to his bae (its probably JJ lets be real)

- Yuri is blown away by all of this because he’s had to fight for himself for so long and WOW its really nice to have someone on his side, for once

- Otabek and Yuri have very similar backstories in terms of families depending on them and they end up staying up all night talking about their family and sharing pictures. 

- Otabek is honestly Yuri’s first friend and Yuri can’t. shut. up. about him. He doesn’t even realize he’s doing it he’s just “did u know Otabek’s favorite color is blue? Did you know he started training when he was six- that’s so late!!! And yet he’s soooooo talented. Otabek tried piroshky last night and he said he rlly liked it!” 


- i have more but this post is getting too long. please join in fam.
