There is song that's like "she's a bullet" or shotgun or...something like that, do you know what it is?
Anyway it is about a guy singing to his wife and it is a really slow song. The guy is from another band...maybe Thursday but I am not sure. I heard it years ago and for some reason it is coming back to me and it is driving me crazy.

What's bothering you?

so at work we got a shipment of feeder mice in, including babies. but apparently the mom mouse DNW the babies so she well... killed them. i was told to just clean out the cage because it was a massacre and there were no survivors. BUT LO AND BEHOLD! i decided to check each baby and found one still moving just a bit. and they're still alive! yay baby mouse! so we're keeping it as another "store mascot" (along with one which was born without a tail a while ago) AND I GET TO NAME HIM/HER (can't tell the gender yet)
WHAT SHOULD I NAME THIS BABY MOUSE? girl names or boy names, idc... because well, obviously we don't know yet. tail-less mouse is named Georgia, fwiw.

Do you get mad when people open things incorrectly?
Someone opened one of our cleaning wipes (furniture polish, to be exact) the wrong way (not by the little thing where you pull them out at and can seal them up), like you'd open a bag of chips, so when I realized it was open the wrong way they were all dried out and basically a waste of money

What can I do to cheer her up, and leave her with happy memories of getting it?
ETA: If you have one, how did you bite the bullet and get your tattoo? Ive had an idea which I really love, and her asking me to go with her was out of the blue, so I feel like I should go for it tomorrow, but i'm overthinking it!

Tell me about your dream wedding? Or if you don't want to get married, then tell me about your ideal living-with-someone situation?
Personally I want a late-summer wedding (like around now), ceremony in a chapel, with the reception at sunset/night outside, in a big white tent, with lots of food and dancing and champagne and a band. Basically like the best dress up party ever.
Hokay, TQC. I am dying my hair turquoise. I already bleached my hair (volume 20) once, and while it was mostly a light yellow, a few spots were a darker yellow borderline orange. I'm rebleaching it. The first time, I applied it liberally but obviously missed a couple spots, and waited 50 minutes. How long should I wait this time? I'm trying not to totally fry my hair but if I dye it turquoise now, those spots will be evident? I'm thinking 25 minutes this time?

What advice would you give to a recent college graduate?
You've had a long day at work/class/whatever and you'd like to vent about it to your significant other. S/he is playing a video game when you get home and asks you about your day.

Do you automatically look down on someone who dislikes their grandparents or outright hates them?
I wouldn't say I hate my grandmother, but I do dislike her and wish I didn't have to spend time with her. Let me share some things...
-She left her three kids to be raised by her mother, and knew her mother was physically abusing them. When my aunt asked her not to leave her with her grandmother, she basically said, "Sorry, she used to hit me too. Just live with it." When my grandpa found out, he kicked both women out of the house for awhile. Grandma asked where she was going to live, and grandpa said, "I don't give a shit!"
-She once stabbed my grandpa in the hand with a knife during an argument. This earned her a punch in the face by her teenage son. She told people her husband hit her. I saw her hit my grandpa several times while he was alive, so she was quite obviously the abusive one.
-When my mother had me, she was unmarried but living with my father. It was an otherwise stable relationship. Grandma had a friend who was raising her grandchild because the father left. Grandma said, "I wish Jeff(my dad) would leave Andrea(my mother) so I could raise Lisa(me)."
-She spread rumors that her sister's husband was sexually abusing his kids because she didn't like him.
-When my grandpa was dying of cancer, she refused to help him to and from the bathroom because she "needed her rest."
This was brought on by my seeing her spit her gum out on a gas station floor today. I told her someone would have to clean that, and she said, "That's what the janitor is paid for."
And people are shocked when they learned I'd rather not spend any time with my grandmother.
I'm waiting for my flight which is the last of the night. There is a lady coughing stuff up into a garbage can. I will be stuck sitting next to her, y/n?

Are there any sizeable things you've lost that you're still wondering where the hell they disappeared to?
I've somehow managed to lose two Punisher t-shirts, the second which I bought to replace the first when I lost that one. I still have no idea what happened to either of them, and it still bugs me when I think about it.
