You know the adorable Google "Search Stories" ads wherein you find out someone's getting married or having babies or some business and it's all heartwarming and what-have-you because you watch them type queries into the Google search bar?

Yes, you do know them. Turns out--and I'm sure I'm late coming to this--you can make "search stories" of your own via YouTube. It's actually a pretty sweet little meme if you want to get sucked into doing nothing important for hours. So instead of lovey stories about loveybusiness, I figured I'd make a couple to honor my favorite hashtag, #beingasinglelady. After the jump, a two-part singleladyhood via "search stories."



And:


They're only a little bit inspired by real life, promise. Oh, and I made a grad school one, too, because I'm in grad school and I have that kind of free time. Speaking of that, actually, I've got several hours of paper grading to do tonight. Won't you Dolls make your own #beingasinglelady search stories and share them with us?

Single ladies have all the fun. :( My google searches would be "How to stop husband from snoring without suffocation w/pillow" and "is leaving child alone for five minutes while in the bathroom considered neglect"
