Very Cosmopolitan.

17 November 2011

The last time my sister Elise was home from college, she came over to hang out.  She started flipping through a Cosmo magazine that I hadn’t read yet. 

I can’t even remember why I had picked it up in the first place since I am very clearly too old to be reading Cosmo.  At 35, I very much do not need to know 30 Things To Do With a Naked Man.  Not one of those 30 said, “tell him to put his clothes back on until you have sleeping children.”

And did you know you can get an iphone app for positions from Cosmo?  Seriously, if you’re consulting your iphone when you’re doing the dirty, you’ve got bigger issues than a lack of what to do next.  “Hang on just a moment.  No.  No.  Hmm… Maybe that one.  No.  Ah, yes, that is the one!  Just angle yourself over this way.  Wait, let me check again to see if that’s right.”

When I mentioned that I hadn’t read it yet, Elise asked why there were pages marked.

“Dave read it.”

“Why would Dave read Cosmo?”

“He was bookmarking things he wanted me to read.”

“Oh my God, EW!”

Yeah.  That wasn’t awkward at all.

Any cringe worthy moments in your house lately?

Hah! That's so awesome. I don't think my husband would ever pick up my Real Simple, but that's because he's weird. Hehe.

No cringe worthy moments yet, but that one was hilarious!

That made me laugh out loud at the table this morning!

That's hilarious! I used to read Cosmo faithfully. I hadn't picked one up in years and the other day was reading one at some office while waiting. I, like you, found there wasn't much in it for the mother of two very young children. It also doesn't have the suggestion of "quickly grab your man and run to the bedroom while the kids are napping. Make sure you are quick about it before they wake up."
