5 Frosty Narnia Memes

The Chronicles of Narnia is a foundational fantasy work, and it’s also got some very funny moments. Moments that should be memes. From putting a lamppost in the story for spite to not even bothering to hide the religious allegory, Lewis wasn’t afraid of anything, and it shows. He goes all in, and I respect the hell out of it.


At All Times

If this was a list of things I’ve gotten together, there wouldn’t even be a heading. What’s working? Nothing. Obviously. I’m a disaster at the best of times, but add midterms and/or having to save the world? Please. Lucy’s face says everything. Really the ultimate mood. At least I haven’t spent any time in a freezing river recently. Small mercies.

Look, it’s hard to be on the cutting edge of memes. I mean, in my opinion, memes change like fine wine, but there’s nothing wrong with a fresh, spicy meme. And if you’re wondering if I’ve seen a new meme yet—I have. In the iconic words of my kid sister, it’s all memes in here (my brain). I’ve seen it all. If there was a meme museum, I’d be a docent.

It’s one of those things that sounds reasonable and then you’re like… why would I need to do that. Like, maybe open a window? Of course if you’ve got the vapors, going outside might be better, but not if you have hay fever. I love Susan’s practicality. She’s like, you know what improves every situation? Fresh air. I’m surprised she didn’t put on a kettle.



Nerds? Book Nerds?

It’s the constant struggle. You see someone reading and enjoying a book you love, do you interrupt them? I get almost as excited as I do when I see any dogs. I want. To be friends. Like, let’s talk about books. Let’s talk about everything. It’s an objectively bad energy, and you can’t come in with that on the subway. You can’t have any energy on the subway. It’s rough.



I’ve Gotta Check Every Time

Look. I don’t think I’ve ever had an actual wardrobe in my life. But I do press on the back of drawers and closet walls. I know they’re made of incredibly normal wood, but I have to hope, you know? Like, I always check my mail for a Hogwarts letter, even though everything else in there is going to be bad. Life may be ordinary, but there’s no reason to lose hope.
