      You need to switch Lola's shampoo to something with a bit more volume.

      I can’t believe how awesome Cortex is. Like, legit, it’s such an awesome idea, and no one else is doing it.

      I’m the kind of person who fancies having “content” out there, but doesn’t have any desire to like become a writer for a company/journal. You’ve given me the ability to do that, and it’s amazing.

        Maybe you should post about how outrageous it is that it was left off.

          I thought about writing a review about how neither of my reviews were included in the recap. But I think I’ll stick to “real” content in cortex and just keep my passive aggressive musings as direct replies to your chatty comments. ;).
