Norma and Milton return home from a night out, and they're barely halfway indoors when the complaining starts. And look, I've certainly been there. You spend a night socializing with people you barely know, and it can often feel so performative—like you're pretending to be someone that you're not. It's exhausting. You can't wait to get home to take of the mask and start feeling like yourself again. I get it, Norma and Milton. Goodnight to both of you!
