The other night, I needed a break from these little stinks, adorable as they are, so Alex put them to bed while I embarked on a long walk around the neighborhood. Earlier that day I had heard about a podcast called Mortified, which features people reading embarrassing things they had written as kids — diaries, poems, fan letters, you name it. It sounds random, but as soon as I started listening I was hooked.

While wandering down the street, past people walking dogs and couples sharing ice creams, I started laughing uncontrollably at a story of a teenager writing to Katharine Hepburn. I’m sure I looked like a total crazy person but it could not be helped.

Have you listened to Mortified? If you’re planning any long walks this weekend, and don’t mind looking insane, I’d highly recommend it. Find all the episodes here.

P.S. Seven best podcasts, and crying in public.
