Episode 40: I Might Regret This

Hey drunkers! So excited to be back discussing I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities and Other Stuff by Abbi Jacobson. Content warning: there is some talk of bodies and diets.

We discuss: gymnastics, olivia’s childhood gymnastics/dance/swim career, getting used to the tone of the book, buying stamps to save the post office and sending letters with a million 2 cent stamps and investing in stamps (sorry y’all, we honestly go OFF on stamps and, no, it’s not related to the book…), the softness of the book’s pages, the kinship Olivia feels with Abbi and her experiences, the fact that Olivia didn’t watch tv in college until junior year and Ashley had been boycotting Hulu for years because she felt betrayed, overlaps Ashley feels with Abbi’s personality, Olivia’s plan to pierce her bellybutton and wear dresses for six months, a rice cake convo, diet-culture and body stuff, Olivia’s dry-cleaning epiphany lololol, the intense anxiety some parts of this book bring up, two Jerome songs, the celebrity romance and parentage mysteries we want to know but shouldn’t care about, and so much more!

We read: I Might Regret This: Essays, Drawings, Vulnerabilities and Other Stuff by Abbi Jacobson
Up next: Cemetary Boys by Aiden Thomas

Olivia drinks: old fridge wine– a 2-day-old bottle of prosecco that is still shockingly bubbly PLUS juice
Ashley drinks: more of that very old viognier (like… a year old???)
