I can’t even explain the chain of surreal situations I have been in throughout my life.
It would take days, no one would believe the stories and most of the time I can hardly believe it as it occurs.
I often eat dessert before dinner because the preparation takes too long.
Caffeine, fast sugars, rinse, repeat.

Yes, sometimes the bullshit chooses you.
Sometimes it just comes barreling down to you from that steaming mountain of shit. There’s a lot of irritating talk of things like “baggage”—whatever that even means. It’s as if beasts always mount their own burdens. It’s as if no lackadaisical, energy-sapping klutz can just heft themselves onto your back.
The bad thing about finding yourself surrounded by vampires is you can’t really outrun them. No, they have to be vanquished and it takes a lot more commitment to do that than most people have the juice for.
