Some things you can do with your time if you’re me
Ride the brown line around the loop and watch city lights glint flashbulb-style off the snow and buildings. Make mix CDs of songs you’ve forgotten you love. Buy some buttermilk and add it to Bisquick pancake mix and end up with pancakes the consistency of dish sponges. Get new Converse sneakers: High tops! Edit friends’ thesis papers; read poetic essays aloud; make people coffee; walk down the alley on your way to work; attempt to jump-start cars: two in the same week — one will utterly fail, one will set your jumper cables on fire. Remember to take care of yourself; to wait patiently for good things to unfold; to not listen to anyone who says emotions are for sissies. Every frozen thing needs to defrost sometime.
