It’s Friday the 13th. It’s been a rough week on top of a rough month. My kitchen sink still doesn’t work. I’m running out of clean dishes and clothes. And we’re still in lockdown. So when I saw the title of this song, let’s just say I could relate. Hard. Which when you think about it, is actually pretty amazing. Mykki Blanco and I couldn’t be more different, and I’m sure I’m missing a lot of cultural points this song is making, but it doesn’t matter. Art hits people in different ways, and this song hit me like a slap across the face. A perfectly timed, very relatable slap that I didn’t know I needed until I started listening. Because let’s face it. I’m in a mood.
