So, so true. Mine moved too far away, and finding a replacement feels damn near impossible.

I don’t want to go home yet but there’s nothing really do to. Well, there are things I could be doing. There always are. But I don’t feel like doing them. I need an excuse to do something else. I don’t want to be alone but I don’t want to be overwhelmed by social obligations and politeness. I need an excuse not to think about it, or stress about it, or worry about it.

I need someone to say, “Hey, want to grab a beer real quick?”

Everyone needs someone to grab a beer with, metaphorically speaking. You could, instead, get coffee or watch a movie. It doesn’t much matter. The point is you need someone where the relationship isn’t that deep, where the hangout is relaxed and devoid of pressure. Someone where it’s not exactly small-talk but it’s not intense either.

Anyway, if you click through to the source website, you will be told that the key to a getting a “perky butt” is to target your lats, because they crisscross across your back to connect to your glutes. That’s right, apparently targeting your lats will give you a better butt than, you know, doing an exercise that actually targets your butt. Maybe you’re supposed to clench a lot?

Excellent Execution

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals―sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
