Ten Things You Don’t Know About Women: Mindy Kaling
April 20, 2008 § 2 Comments
I love this monthly Esquire feature (I believe last month’s was written by the adorable Leslie Mann), but this one seals the deal for me. I’m not shy about my love for Mindy Kaling (yes, I give link love to her site, Things I’ve Bought That I Love, despite the occasional sneaky typo or out-of-business vitamin dealer) — some lolworthy highlights, all of which I 100 percent agree with:
Instead of calling your ex a bitch, say: “[Name] is being difficult and could act more reasonable.” Then vent by flattening some boxes for recycling. This shows restraint and a love for the environment.
Your buddy doesn’t mind receiving his new book in the Borders bag. We do. Wrap everything. Except engagement rings.
Women love sex tapes. Not porn — sex tapes, because scandal is titillating. If you want to trick us into watching porn, tell us the girl in it is famous and we just haven’t heard of her yet.
