Ask Baba Yaga: How Can I Give Fewer Fucks?

Baba fewer fucks

Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

I find myself in a relationship that is generally socially unacceptable. A whole community of people actively frowns upon the idea of us being together. How can I learn to give fewer fucks about what these people think?

BABA YAGA:

I give you this cauldron : open it, & out of it comes a laugh, an enormous laugh with the power of wind, it winds around you and the humans who frown, it wraps around yr love, it is so loud & thick that you must close yr eyes & ears, it lasts for a day & a night. .When it is done & gone, you look around again — what do you see? The land has been blasted by it, it has changed everything, & no one remembers what happened before it stormed the village.
