Dear Magic Shake-Ball:
This woman made her 7-year-old lose 16 pounds, and now she has a book contract even though everyone hates her and thinks she's a crappy mother.
There has to be something I'm doing wrong that I can turn into a book deal. Tell me, all-knowing Shake-Ball, what is it?
"Your virtue is my privilege. For that
It is not night when I do see your face,
Therefore I think I am not in the night..."
(Helena showing really bad judgment and self-loathing issues by following Demetrius around the woods after he's told her he hates her. MND 2.1.220-222)
Bold move, Shake-Ball. It looks like you're telling me to work on chipping away at my daughter's self-esteem by telling her no man or woman will ever want her, while also telling her to keep on following her crushes around anyway because maybe that will work. So cruel, but so potentially lucrative....
