2016 was the year the planet got bitch slapped. I don’t know about you, but this year I’m going to do whatever I can to avoid finding myself on the receiving end.
What Is a Universal Bitch Slap?
A Universal bitch slap happens when you try to shut down your inner intelligence and ignore all the signs you’re given. Here’s an example of one.
