--THINGS HAPPEN. THAT’S ALL THEY EVERY DO.
…Here’s Wednesday and I’m in a funk for no particular reason. Funky Wednesday. That sounds better than it is.
...What witty people said on Facebook last week:
-I just realized what all my troubles have stemmed from: my life was set in airplane mode.
-I'm setting the record straight now: I never ate a placenta. I did, however, keep one in the freezer for over a year, just in case.
-receiving holy messages in public bathrooms is kinda my thing
-a tiny, old man asked me how my hair got purple like that and I said "I woke up like this" so I won today.
-Last night at Little Caesar's I saw a dude in a Slipknot shirt telling his little brother that fireworks are illegal and he would go to jail if he shot any. Way to not be metal, bro.
-There is no difference between a toddler and a very, very drunk person. None.
-Every day I ask Siri to tell me if this novel works and every day Siri tells me "I didn't quite get that."
-When it's about to rain, I like to open all my windows and pee on passersby.
-The neighbors are using a circular saw. In their bedroom. WHAT. ?????
