by Curtis Sittenfeld, excerpted from You Think It, Ill Say It The understanding is that, after Caseys iPhone alarm goes off at 6 15 a m., Kirsten wakes the boys, nudges them to get dressed, and herds them downstairs, all while Casey is showering The four of them eat breakfast as a family, deal with teeth brushing and backpacks, and Casey, who is the principal of the middle school in the same district as the elementary school Jack and Ian attend, drives the boys to drop off Kirsten then takes her shower in the newly quiet house before leaving for work The reality is that, at 6 17, as soon as Casey shuts the bathroom door, Kirsten grabs her own iPhone from her nightstand and looks at Lucy Headricks Twitter feed Clearly, Kirsten is not alone Lucy has 3.1 million followers She follows a mere five hundred and thirty three accounts, many of which belong to fellow celebrities Almost all of Lucys vast social media empire, which of course is an extension of her life style brand empire whatever the fuck a life style brand is , drives Kirsten crazy Its content is fake and pandering and boring and repetitivehow many times will Lucy post variations on the same recipe for buttermilk biscuits and Kirsten devours all of it, every day Facebook and Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest, the blog, the vlog, the TV show Every night, Kirsten swears that she wont devote another minute to Lucy, and every day she squanders hours The reason that things go wrong so early in the morning, she has realized, is this shes pretty sure Twitter is the only place where real, actual Lucy is posting, Lucy whom Kirsten once knew Lucy has insomnia, and, while all the other posts on all the other sites might be written by Lucys minions, Kirsten is certain that it was Lucy herself who, at 1 22 a m., wrote, Watching Splash on cable, oops I forgot to name one of my daughters Madison Or, at 3 14 a m., accompanied by a photo of an organic candy bar Hmm could habit of eating chocolate in middle of night be part of reason I cant sleep LOL Morning, therefore, is when theres new, genuine Lucy sustenance So how can Kirsten resist And then the day is Lucy contaminated already, and theres little incentive for Kirsten not to keep polluting it for the sixteen hours until she goes to bed with the bullshitty folksiness in Lucys life the acquisition of an Alpine goat, the canning of green beans, the baby shower that Lucy is planning for her young friend Jocelyn, who lives on a neighboring farm As it happens, Lucy has written or written Right Theres no way a memoir, with recipesDishin with the Prairie Wifethat is being published today, so Kirstens latest vow is that shell buy the book she tried to reserve it from the library and learned that she was three hundred and fifth in line , read it, and then be done with Lucy Completely Forever The memoir has been embargoedas if Lucy is, like, Henry Kissingerand, to promote it, Lucy travelled yesterday from her farm in Missouri to Los Angeles As she told Twitter, BUMMM PEE flyin over the mountains Today, she will appear on a hugely popular TV talk show on which she has been a guest than once Among last nights tweets, posted while Kirsten was sleeping, was the following Omigosh you guys Im so nervous excited for Mariana Wonder what she will ask The pseudo nervousness, along with the Omigoshnever Omigod, or even OMGgalls Kirsten Twenty years ago, Lucy swore like a normal person but the Lucy of now, Kirsten thinks, resembles Casey, who, when their sons were younger, respectfully asked Kirsten to stop cursing in front of them Indeed, the Lucy of nowbeloved by evangelicals, homeschooler of her three daughters, wife of a man she refers to as the Stud in Overalls, who is a deacon in their churchuses such substitutes as Jiminy Crickets and Fudge Nuggets Once, while making a custard on air, Lucy dropped a bit of eggshell into the mix and exclaimed, Shnookerdookies Kirsten assumed that it was staged, or maybe not originally staged but definitely not edited out when it could have been This made Kirsten feel such rage at Lucy that it was almost like lust Kirsten sees that, last night, Lucy, as she usually does, replied to a few dozen tweets sent to her by nobodies Nicole in Seattle, who has thirty one followers Tara in Jacksonville, whos a mom of two awesome boys Arent we all Kirsten thinks Most of the fans tweets say some variation of Youre so great or Its my birthday pretty please wish me a happy birthday Most of Lucys responses say some variation of Thank you for the kind words or Happy Birthday Kirsten has never tweeted at Lucy in fact, Kirsten has never tweeted Her Twitter handle is not her name but Minneap plus the last three digits of her Zip Code, and, instead of uploading a photo of herself, shes kept the generic egg avatar She has three followers, all of whom appear to be bots Through the bathroom door, Kirsten can hear the shower running, and the minute that Casey turns it offby this point, Kirsten is, as she also does daily, reading an article about how smartphones are destroying peoples ability to concentrateshe springs from bed, flicking on lightswitches in the master bedroom, the hall, and the boys rooms When Casey appears, wet hair combed, completely dressed, and finds Ian still under the covers and Kirsten standing by his bureau, Kirsten frowns and says that both boys seem really tired this morning Casey nods sombrely, even though its what Kirsten says every morning Is Casey clueless, inordinately patient, or both At breakfast, Jack, who is six, asks, Do doctors ever get sick Of course, Casey says Everyone gets sick.While packing the boys lunches, Kirsten says to Ian, who is nine, Im giving you Oreos again today, but you need to eat your cucumber slices, and if theyre still in your lunchbox when you come home you dont get Oreos tomorrow.She kisses the three of them goodbye, and as soon as the door closes, even before she climbs the stairs, Kirsten knows that shes going to get herself off using the handheld showerhead She doesnt consider getting herself off using the handheld showerhead morally problematic, but it presents two logistical complications, the first of which is that, the often she does it, the difficult it is for Casey to bring her to orgasm on the occasions when theyre feeling ambitious enough to have sex The second complication is that it makes her late for work If Kirsten leaves the house at 7 45, she has a fifteen minute drive if she leaves at or after 7 55, the drive is twice as long But, seriously, what else is she supposed to do
