I recall clearly the feeling of going out into the city each Saturday night looking for love, hoping I’d find her at a bar in a dark room where the music was loud and the drinks were strong and the flashing lights pounded upon our cheekbones like a sculptors chisel on marble, and I’d find her, on the wall, with a short black straw between two full-blooded lips and she’d say, ‘I’ve been waiting too.’ The two of us would leave that life behind, fall in love, travel the world, get married, have children, live a life. However, what I have learned is that the city is no place to look for love, rather a refuge for those among us who have found it, but lost it, or let it go — a small dark room crowded wall to wall with neon light and spilt alcohol, all of us, just abandoned loveless souls, dancing to forget who we’ve lost.

COLLEGE FIRST.

I love how the Addams Family has ZERO slut-shaming. Like… honey you can dance naked and enslave someone with your womanly charms if you want to, I don’t fucking care, but so help me you’re going to get a college education first.

A+ PARENTING

The Addamses are what every family should aspire to be like (you know; without the dismemberment and electric chairs as play time).  Honestly, have you ever seen more unconditionally loving and supportive parents than Gomez and Morticia?  And not just with the kids, but with each other.  I think what’s especially unique about them is how open they are with everything.  They don’t treat their children like children.  They treat them like they treat everyone else; direct, and to the point. 

It’s creepy how many good examples of parenting and romantic relationships there is in these characters, especially considering they are supposed to be the antithesis of the stereotypical American nuclear family.
