here’s a juicy secret…

We’ve been busy lately at Cosmo HQ. Or I guess I should say, busier than usual. After hours, in between our regular work, we’ve been covertly obsessing over a cool new project. And as a staff of self-professed bad secret-keepers (I am perhaps the worst, being from the South, where “Okay, so I didn’t tell you this but” is the beginning of half of all conversations), it’s been hard not to talk about. So thank god for today: the day I get to finally spill the tea. Or more accurately, the juice.

the cold sweats set in around 11 a.m. every Sunday. I open my fridge and see a barren wasteland of old ketchup packets, which I saved for some reason, and one bag of shredded cheese that’s probably been in there a liiittle too long. I order a bagel (delivery, because I’m lazy) and face the inevitable: I need to go to the supermarket. I am, and I cannot stress this enough, absolutely terrible at grocery shopping. Like, go-in-with-good-intentions-but-come-out-with-nothing-but-boxes-of-instant-ramen-level bad. At least I’m aware of my issues. Let’s start with planning. Some people spend a quality chunk of time laboring over the perfect shopping list. But when I sit down to make one, it’s like I’ve never eaten a real meal. Lasagna? Never heard of her. Baked chicken?
