Happy Birthday Mindy Kaling

Here’s our interview with Kaling, in which we talk about fashion:

"I have found it to be true that men tend to not understand or like sequins very much. Men don’t like the wedge shoe, I have noticed. Men don’t like the statement necklace or chunky, tribal jewelry. These are all the things, by the way, that I love, so the overlap in the Venn diagram of things that men hate for women to wear, and things that I love to wear, is almost full overlap … which is unfortunate for me.

Like most women, I dress for other women. If I was going to dress for men, in general, I would just be wearing a fitted black T-shirt and tight jeans every day. Of course, this is my unscientific research done by working with male comedy writers for the past eight years. They just tend to really like — this specific group of guys — really simple, clean lines, things like that, but I don’t. So I dress for women, I wear all of those things, because I like looking at it. It makes me feel happy and excited to wear it.”

Me: What?
Ducky: What what?
Me: Why are you looking at me?
Ducky: You look sad.
Me: Sorry.
Ducky: It’s okay. No reason to apologize. Just thought I’d keep my eyes on you.
Me: It’s not your job.
Ducky: True. But as a dog, my employment options are limited to begin with. The upside is I have lots of discretionary time, some of which I am choosing to spend by keeping my eyes on you because you look sad.
Me: …
Ducky: Any specific reason you’re sad today?
Me: Nothing. And everything.
Ducky: One of those sads.
Me: Yeah.
Ducky: Sorry. I know you hate those the worst.
Me: Yeah. 
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: Want to give me a bath?
Me: You hate baths.
Ducky: Yes. But you never seem sad when you’re giving me a bath.
Me: I just think giving you a bath requires a lot of focused attention. It’s hard to be sad when you’re mentally engaged.
Ducky: I am not an easy bathing, I admit.
Me: If I’m not careful you’ll jump out of the tub.
Ducky: And then…HONDURAS!!!
Me: That’s the plan?
Ducky: There’s really no plan beyond getting out of the tub. But I thought you’d find a Honduran bath escape amusing.
Me: Well done.
Ducky: So if you gave me a bath you might forget that you’re sad for a little bit!
Me: Maybe. Or maybe I could play tugger with you for a little bit instead.
Ducky: That works too?
Me: It occupies my mind too, which is probably what I need.
Ducky: …
Me: …
Ducky: I don’t want to influence your decision but tugger sounds like a much better solution.
Me: Agreed. But you would have let me give you bath if it would have made me less sad, huh?
Ducky: If it would have helped? Yup!
Me: …
Ducky: But let’s not dwell on ideas that we generated as part of the brainstorming process now that we have identified the best fit solution.
Me: Sounds good to me. I love you, Ducky. 
Ducky: I love you too , Daddy. Oh! And Happy Daddy’s Day, Daddy!
Me: Thanks, Duck.
