Verbal Leashes, Repeating Outfits, and Alt Electric Vehicles

A Thing or Two with Claire and Erica

Jan 22 2024 • 44 mins

We’ve got some hot topics like celebrity activism and when to share pregnancy news—and even hotter topics like verbal leashes, sleeping with socks on, and weird terminology for just wearing your damn clothes.

New nym alert!!! Good Inside by Becky Kennedy brings us MGI: most generous interpretation.

Claire’s IG exchange with Nancy Meyers in this Instagram post confirms that there are, in fact, Vicente Foods bags in The Holiday (and that N.M. is the greatest).

The thing having a moment this week: Rivians and their mascot, Gary the Gear Guard.

Two things we’re happy about being “in” in 2024 include outfit-repeating and going to the movies. Shoutout to this @flwrchldtweets tweet and Dwight Garner’s Grub Street Diet.

Dog people: Is a verbal leash (not the yet-to-be-written spinoff to Best in Show) a thing? Please let us know at 833-632-5463,, or @athingortwohq—and chat it up about anything at all in our Geneva!
