SAUNA

SAUNA

The sauna is my favorite place on this planet. Please don’t talk on your phone in here.  I will lose my shit, no joke. I’m a Virgo, just so you know and astrology never sleeps. What gets me is not the noise but the repetition.  What gets me is that this is the way things are now.

THE YEAR OF THE PIG

THE YEAR OF THE PIG

I’m at Costco buying a vegetable tray for a faculty party I do not want to go to.  Trying not to have a panic attack. I’m in charge of appetizers. I’m the plastic palm tree by the giant televisions.  A cold pepperoni pizza sample. I’m the year of the Pig and everyone is laughing.
