FYI: Don't eat your friend's bedside Nutella

My girlfriend and I were stunned, but we couldn’t allow the smiles to escalate into laughter when we saw what she did. Our eyes bulged out at each other in a moment of shared disbelief. All the while, the Nutella jar stared back at us.


It was like all Saturday mornings, lying in bed, doing our thing. The two of us generated enough power to rival steam engines, our intertwined bodies heightening her dorm's humidity.

Mirrors fog with that action.

Being with the same person for some time opens doors. Eventually, a Columbus-like quest to explore takes ahold of each partner. Around that time, our fuel for more had a grip on us.

If you've yet to dirty the sheets with a form of chocolate sauce, let me tell you, those stains do not come out easily. But some messes are worth the trouble. Good parents put up with shitty diapers because they love their kids.

Perched atop her desk was our delectable sauce of choice, calling for attention. Typical humans apply it to toast, even make a mid-afternoon sandwich out of the hazelnut spread. But for us, Nutella was a lifestyle.

The container was not to be consumed with food, but with love.

Kinky? You tell me. All I know is there is a cultural fascination with the use of Nutella in the boudoir that influenced us to drop $3. A fantastic purchase might I add. Ohhh, in the heat of the moment, no thought concerning the cleanliness of our hands went into scooping for more. Lying there that Saturday, a half-empty bottle was sealed once more.

Without a knock, she entered. One of my girlfriend's best friends, now apologizing for barging in on our under-the-blanket nudity. In her defense, she didn't know I was there. But all was well. My girl and I hadn't broken free from focusing on each other. We heard the suction of a finger lick.

"Mm, whose Nutella?"

A nuclear bomb's worth of holy shit energy exploded in our hearts. It all happened so fast.

What we saw appalled us. Her friend had, without second thought, opened the bedside jar and gone at it with a hardy dip. She tightened the cap, set it down, and wrapped up the conversation. Then poof! Gone.

If only she knew... oh the humanity.

I can't imagine how hard and fast the gagging would come. Any effort on our part to keep the contents of that jar free from certain fluids went away after purchase. And damn, girlfriend to girlfriend, I know that would be some vomit. Just imagine ingesting some of your bff's fluids, as microscopic as it gets. No thank you. I say that emphatically.

There really are some things better left unshared. My God it was hilariously unsettling. I'm sure we've all had our fill of booger infested slushies and hairy sandwiches. But I vow to never eat random Nutella by the bed.

Do yourselves a similar favor. Believe the worst in people for your own benefit. That chocolate sauce conveniently placed by the mattress isn't so innocent. I've lived its guilt.

So have your parents.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
