so i went to the zoo yesterday and saw the cutest family of otters ever
and then i checked their names

WHY WOULD THEY DO THIS
"Kevin is the clown of the family."
I can’t wait to get married because its like a sleepover every night with your best friend.
That’s the cutest description of marriage I’m not even joking
It’s better than ‘betting someone half your stuff that you’ll love them forever’
Just want to remind everyone that I made Skip’s Scramble.
Don’t order the Skip’s Scramble.
today my professor told me
every cell in our entire body
is destroyed and replaced
every seven years.
how comforting it is to know
one day i will have a body
you will have never touched.
I actually think we believe this as a culture. (Tom is a great character—by far the best on the show in my opinion—because he is so representatively American, simultaneously obsessed with entrepreneurialism and romantic love and leisure.)
Anyway I am fascinated with our intense nonrational relationship to consumer goods. Like, I almost cried recently when a 15-year-old plastic spatula broke. Sarah had that spatula before we even started dating. We’d used that spatula the first time we cooked together! That spatula was supposed to last forever but then it abandoned us.
And that, I’m afraid, is the true way of things, Tom. Like us, they are here for only a little while. Unlike us, when they stop working we cannot bequeath them to the dirt to help grow the grass we love or whatever. And there’s the rub.
COMMODITY FETISHISM Y’ALL. Please listen to Marx and love people more than things.
