Does this fedora distract from my man boobs?
Jessa and Hannah take the new puppies to the park and name them ‘Fucker’, ‘Garbage’, and ‘Hanukkah’. Well done ladies, that’s my favorite word, favorite 90s alternative band fronted by a women and my favorite non-Christian gift giving holiday, respectively.
Is it an inappropriate time to bring up how you almost had an abortion last year?
Jessa asks Hannah how things are going with Sandy and is surprised to hear that he hasn’t made time to read her essay. She thinks it is bullshit that he hasn’t taken the time to read her work. “If he isn’t reading your essay, then he isn’t reading you”, she points out. Hannah said she is also slightly bothered by Sandy’s political beliefs, to which Jessa replies “why does it matter? Republicans and Democrats, they’re all crooks. Bill Clinton repealed Glass- Stegall, which is why our economy is such a mess” to an unaware Hannah, who apparently hasn’t read a newspaper in the past four years.
Hannah confronts Sandy on not reading her essay and he makes another bullshit excuse. She lets him on the conversation she had with Jessa earlier, where he doesn’t care for her if he doesn’t take the time to read her work. He squirms uncomfortably. You’re talking to Childish Gambino here, he was a writer on Emmy award winning “30 Rock”. He just probably didn’t want to read your child-like, self aggrandizing, woe is me 20-something shit writing. So kill him.
I bet this kind of crap never happens to Aziz Ansari
He cops to having actually read Hannah’s essay but it wasn’t his cup of tea. Sandy tells her while it was well written, it didn’t actually go anywhere. I guess we’re getting meta here- as this was largely the complaint lodged at the first season of “Girls”- great writing, but it means nothing and doesn’t go anywhere. Whether it’s a fair assessment or not, it’s a good metaphor for twentysomethings. You spend almost an entire decade spinning your wheels only to end up where you started, which in Hannah’s case means ending up with another unappreciative boyfriend.
Hannah, having sensed this lack of appreciation, pretends she is happy that Sandy didn’t like her work as he can provide her with some meaningful criticism. She longs for an open dialogue about her work and the world- I guess anything is a welcome change after her relationship with Adam. She is willing to let Sandy’s criticism of her work in and says it’s basically what she does with his political views.
Hannah doesn’t understand how Sandy, as a Republican, can justify not wanting to see Elijah or any gay person enjoy the happiness of marriage. Nor does she understand how he is fine with letting anyone own a gun, or how he can justify how two-thirds of death row inmates are Black. Hannah Horvath, ladies and gentleman, she’s like a constantly naked, chubby Rachel Maddow.
