Has Small Talk ended?
I hope not
“Old People” Ceruti, that’s hurtful.
You know I love the show by how many 5 Star reviews I’ve written and I’m a Day 1 Shelly but it’s really rude to say that only “old people” like the parades. You’ll be old one day too. Not that you have to care one minute what we think because god knows you guys in media get crushed on social media which is SO WRONG EVERY SINGLE TIME but it has never ONCE been from me. It sickens me to see anyone treated that way which is why I follow mostly dogs and a few of my favorite media ppl like you two. It was pretty disheartening to hear you say that about old people.
I’m the one that submitted the review regarding returning your moms text messages bc she loves you and wants to be in your life.
“Old people” have had it pretty rough the last two years along w ALL of humanity but please be nicer. From the wonderful family that you have talked about, they raised you to be kind. I’ve been a huge fan and this hurt my heart.
Thank you for reading this bc I think you really do care what the Day 1 Shelly’s think.
Sporting KC love
Loved hearing that Michelle had a great time at SKC. It’s a very unique sports experience that is carefully thought out. Certainly not perfect, but better than most.
Can’t wait to strike up the rivalry with SLSC.
