On Being Alone; On Coping With Loss

Lock yourself in the only bathroom. Paint your nails. Do at least 6 full coats. Dry them with cigarette smoke.

With every coat, think of an argument you've had. Paint over with a layer of apology.

On Finding Your Roots

On Compromising

Foot on foot when it is cold.

Though putting your cold foot into the warm crotch of your sleeping partner is preferred to you, it is not to him. One must reach a compromise in order to sleep well and happy in winter times.

On Hide And Go Seek


Become anxious when time has passed.

We watched the sunset.

On Reconstructing Selected Memories

Kristina, Ryan, and I went hiking in the green hills. It was rainy and everything was quiet and green.

"Not goats," said Ryan. "Coyotes."

On Washing the Dishes While Contemplating Past Actions With Regret

Handle each item one at a time with utmost care.

Each item is a diplomat who can travel through the time space continuum to make amends for your past deeds.

On How to Burn Water

Fill a large pot with water.

Place on stove and set fire setting on "High".

Call your mother, father, closest friend, relative, spouse, or significant other; and inform them that you have changed your sexual orientation, you are leaving everything behind, and are taking a new husband/wife/life partner that person has never met before. Follow up every question with a reciprocal question and fall into a twisting ontological discourse on desire and happiness.

Once you are done, your water should be fully burned.
