I’m superstitious about fortune cookies— I’ve saved every fortune I’ve gotten since I was like, 12. I treat them like Magic 8 balls or tarot cards; always ask myself a question before I open them, then read the fortune in accordance to that question.

So, before I opened one today, I thought to myself, “What’s up in my love-life? Why are these Minnesota boys so on-the-fly all the time? I’m casually dating three of them right now, and they still don’t add up to one real, present dude.”

I cracked, chewed, and read: “Hone your competitive instincts.” Then, I flipped it over, and low and behold, found my lucky number on a fortune for only the 3rd time. I’m taking this as a sign. Yikes. I forgot how miserable the early stages of dating can be sometimes.

When you re-read a classic you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than there was before.

So, when I die, I want to be reincarnated, and I want to come back as this dog. Because this house pet has a better standard of living than I do.

Remember when you were in like, 4th grade and teachers used to quiz you in school about state geography, or adults would casually drop a place’s name that you were just supposed to KNOW in conversation? Moving to Minnesota has been a lot like that. I don’t know what states border my new-ishly adopted one, and when someone name-drops a town at work, I have to carefully craft my reaction around the WAY that they infer the town. “Oh, do I have to refrigerate these cupcakes? Because I have to drive all the way home to Minnewishatonka tonight…” “Oh no, not Minnewishatonka! That’s so…far? Cold? Close to the asshole of the universe?”

(Just to be clear, Minnewishatonka is not a real place’s name. Although by Minnesota standards, it definitely could be.)

Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as an escape.
