What is really cool about this piece from Bryan— it’s chalk on a chalkboard. Such a hard medium to control, takes some time, and in moments— it can be wiped away. Just think on that.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. 🎄☃️🎁🤧

You advocate against using pejorative language because it tends to dictate how the reader ought to feel. But what if the narrator uses pejorative language against themself in a self-deprecating way. You get laughs when you read a particular line in Romance, that goes like, "The only way a girl like her would talk to me is to tell me I'm a fat pig. And that I'm blocking her entire view of the ocean." And they are legit funny lines.
