    17 Questions I Have About "Sex and the City" Now That I Am An Adult

    Didn't they get blisters on their feet?

    1. How did Carrie Bradshaw live in a fabulous apartment in the middle of Manhattan all by herself when all she did was write one weekly column?

    HBO

    Carrie Bradshaw did less work than a security guard's jacket, so how in the world was she able to pay for that apartment?

    2. And following that same train of thought, how could Carrie Bradshaw afford to buy a pair of Manolos every week and walk around decked out in designer threads simply by writing ONE WEEKLY COLUMN?

    HBO

    Seriously, how much did she earn per column? $800? More???

    3. Moreover, how could Carrie Bradshaw afford to eat out every night, have brunch every Sunday, and drink a cosmopolitan every single day just by writing that one freaking weekly column?

    HBO

    Oh yeah, and she also always rode home in a taxi.

    4. Could it be that her columnist job was only a cover and that Carrie Bradshaw was actually an escort, and her "boyfriends" actually her clients?

    HBO

    This is the only way I can explain her lifestyle!

    5. Or maybe Carrie was actually the official dope dealer of Manhattan's West Side?

    HBO

    Now that I manage a home budget, Carrie, I can tell you that your numbers don't add up.

    6. What about Carrie's sex life: Isn't it a bit monotonous and bland, given that she is, after all, a columnist writing about sex and relationships?

    HBO

    Try something new, Carrie! Get it on with your man on a couch! Go crazy!

    7. Were gay men a must-have accessory for modern, fun-loving women in the ’90s?

    8. Didn't Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte ever get fed up with Carrie always asking "How is it going?" whenever the four of them got together, and then listening for approximately seven seconds before interrupting them so she could talk about herself?

    HBO

    What's more, after Carrie finished talking, talking, and talking some more about herself and her boyfriends, she asked her friends for advice. But did she ever follow their advice?? Hmm?????

    9. How was it possible that the four main characters ran around New York in high heels all day and never once mentioned the blisters or back pain caused by that madness?

    HBO

    Must be because ALL THEY KNOW HOW TO TALK ABOUT IS MEN.

    10. How could four grown-up, professional women, in some cases even with a couple of kids, manage to meet up at least two or three times a week, when I don't even have time to bake a couple of pies?

    HBO

    How do they do it?

    11. And check out the amount of alcohol consumed by these ladies.

    HBO

    Do they always have terrible hangovers??

    12. A woman is free to wear whatever she feels like wearing, but didn't Carrie sometimes cross the line between "fashionably chic" and "old lady going downstairs to buy some bread while wearing lots of layers of clothing"?

    HBO

    13. Why would anyone ever sleep in a bra?

    HBO

    WTF.

    14. Where are their families? Parents? Siblings? Why don't any of them ever talk on the phone with Mom and Dad?

    HBO

    I only saw Miranda's mother once, and even that was at said mother's funeral.

    15. How many people can you go out with in a month? Why did most of their conversations begin with "I met this guy... " or "A friend introduced me to this man who..."?

    HBO

    16. And above all, why are these modern, independent women only happy when they are in a relationship with a man...

    HBO

    17. ...and why do they spend all of their damn time talking about men, relationships, and how unhappy they are when they're alone?

    HBO
