One more day, one more review! Chicago Party Aunt 1×03 “Ribs For Her Pleasure” shows us that most of the time our demons are our greatest enemies but is important what we learn by facing them. Time for review!
Here we go!
Why are we always obsessed with looking young? Society requires us to do so. We must not have wrinkles, spare tires, sagging skin or cellulite and we must be basically perfect, regardless of our age. For this reason, when we are over forty and nature continues its course, for society we’re an old woman … and everyone treats us as such.
That’s what happened to Diane in Chicago Party Aunt 1×03 “Ribs For Her Pleasure.” A couple of unfortunate comments from idiotic people and she felt old, worn out, as she had never felt before. As if she’s a zero to the left. Suddenly, she stopped being Diane, the sugarcane woman who will never drink her last beer or live her last party to be … nobody. Not even knowing who she was.
Plastic surgery seemed like her only solution, but that would be a huge mistake. Diane’s already perfect just the way she is, she doesn’t need a scalpel to fix something that isn’t broken. But when our self-esteem is at such a low level we aren’t aware of anything other than what we can’t stop repeating ourselves … until something happens that changes everything.
Bonnie, even though she can’t help but fight non-stop with Diane, loves her too much to let her do this crazy thing but she is not the one who ends up helping Diane in Chicago Party Aunt 1×03 “Ribs For Her Pleasure” if not someone who serves to raise her self esteem. That guy ends up being a jerk but he did what was required of him.
Did you guys get emotional about Bonnie and Diane’s conversation too? That sisterhood love… it’s amazing to see and feel it.
Daniel, for his part, is fighting his own battles in Chicago Party Aunt 1×03 “Ribs For Her Pleasure.” In high school he was never popular and, as the years go by and we meet face to face with the popular ones of the school again, we just want to show them that now, we’re popular and belong to their club. Even if that means pretending to be someone we are not. The need for acceptance, to vindicate yourself is too strong to ignore.
Plus, Daniel also has another incentive to do this … his high school first crush. He seems perfect to him, so cute, so good, so… handsome and hot. Maybe now is their time … and Daniel is not going to miss the opportunity. But… the guy turned out to be an idiot and he was just… playing games? Giving Daniel hope? Taking advantage of him? Or was he too dumb to realize what was going on? I guess we’ll never know…
It’s the first time we have seen Daniel show his sexuality so openly. I don’t think he feels that he can show himself as he is in front of his parents and come out – I think that even with Diane feels self-conscious, although she already knows it because she knows him too well – but when no one is around, he feels free and show what he really feels. He shows us this part of him that we hope we see more of. And hopefully Daniel will soon feel comfortable telling his parents who he is. Crossing fingers.
Here ends our Chicago Party Aunt 1×03 “Ribs For Her Pleasure” review. We will be back tomorrow with a new one. Stay tuned!
