My most favorite episode of This is Us I’ve had the pleasure of writing is currently in production, and the Cake Opened most beautifully last night at the Geffen, but I am the MOST PROUD of my seamless, elegant transition from Daywear to Nightwear. YOU TRULY HAVE NOT LIVED, OR ARRIVED, UNTIL YOU HAVE CHANGED YOUR UNDERWEAR IN THE BATHROOM AT WORK.

GLAMOUR; LUXURY

August 26th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

To any of those who, for whatever reason, are under the false impression that my life is in any way elegant or charming, HERE IS THE ROACH THAT JUST DIED ON MY SHOE.

girl, inside

August 12th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

When I remember to get my hair cut, I always leave the place feeling like an elegant, effortless Body Wash Commercial, stepping out of a white limo on a Loop,

But then I quickly remember the girl inside, who recedes into her chins, pouting at the family wedding because everyone ate all of the mini quiches before she could have one.

I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER THAT THIS IS WHY I WAS POUTING.

Giving you Lip

August 2nd, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Wax person, after doing my eyebrows: would you like me to do your lip hair?

Me: what lip hair?

Wax person: RIP

Me: AHHHHHHHHHHHOOWWW I CAN’T FEEL MY FACE, DO I STILL HAVE A FACE?

Wax person: YES AND NOW IT’S PERFECTLY HAIRLESS

Me: RUDE. (Looks in mirror) WELL, NOW I’M BEAUTIFUL.

GUILT FREE DESSERT 🍮

July 21st, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

1. Select your favorite seasonal stone fruit

2. Lightly brush with olive oil

3. Grill over medium heat for 4-5 minutes each side

4. Lightly sprinkle with cinnamon and turbinado

5. ENJOY, WHILE FEELING GUILTY ABOUT ALL THE WORK YOU COULD BE DOING BUT INSTEAD YOU WERE GRILLING FRUIT

6. DIGEST, WONDER IF YOU ARE CAPABLE OF DOING ANYTHING AT ALL WITHOUT FEELING THE TINIEST BIT OF GUILT

7. But maybe it’s the guilt that motivates you and affords you the right to take ten minutes and do something nice for yourself?

8. CHASE STONE FRUIT WITH SKITTLES, DREAM OF UNWRITTEN THINGS

favorite brother game

July 5th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

As a girl with three brothers, I like to play a game with myself in which I pick a favorite brother. It’s riveting, as you never quite know WHO I’m going to pick. It’s usually the brother that I most recently hung out with, as whenever I see one of them I leave feeling, now that. THAT is definitely my favorite brother, thus bumping whatever brother I saw previously out of the coveted spot (LIKE I SAID, RIVETING  WITH VERY VERY HIGH STAKES). This week’s favorite brother award goes to Pete, for his buoyant energy and seasonal patriotism:

But then also we’ve got our runners ups, Dan and Tim, who are definitely, without a doubt, my second and third favorite brothers,

who also have no idea that I play this game, nor, I would imagine, do they care. POINTS FOR CONFIDENCE AND EASE / AW HECK, THEY’RE ALL MY FAVORITE

PLAYWRIGHTS: BROUGHT TO YOU BY ADIDAS

June 25th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

DON’T JUST RUN, RUN SORT OF SLOWLY WHILE LISTENING TO THE VOICES IN YOUR HEAD, AND MAYBE IF YOU PASS A COUPLE HAVING AN ARGUMENT, PRETEND YOU NEED TO TIE YOUR SHOE FOR A LONG TIME AND STOP AND BLATANTLY LISTEN THEM

BUT WAIT, DON’T FORGET, YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE JOGGING

JOG ANOTHER 100-200 FEET, GO BACK HOME TO WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU JUST HEARD

DON’T FORGET TO NOT STRETCH AFTER AND DEVELOP SEVERE PIRIFORMIS SYNDROME AS YOU HUNCH OVER YOUR LAPTOP LIKE A FAT CHILD WITH SECRETS

TURN THOSE SECRETS INTO PLAYS

Crossed wires

June 24th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

I submit the following as evidence of the fact that there is too much in my brain right now:

Last night, as we’re walking past a pond full of loud and expressive frogs:

Me: isn’t it crazy that they make those sounds with their legs?

Morrison:…..what?

Me: what?

Morrison:……….

Me: nope. That’s crickets. THAT’S CRICKETS.

Morrison: (laughing)

Me: CRICKETS, THAT’S CRICKETS. FROGS ARE THROATS, JUST KEEP WALKING.

KEWT BOI

June 14th, 2018 by Bekah Brunstetter

Crushing hard on this impish ten year old, who just this morning told me that he ‘dreamt the moon broke into pieces,’ who is also now a grown man and my husband, but who carries this imp inside of him, keeps him safe and close. 💙
