Two pieces of writing I’ve enjoyed lately:
There’s plenty of advice out there about what to do to attract a great guy, but sometimes it’s easier to understand what not to do. Therefore, from a wealth of personal experience–my own and that of some other battle-scarred ladies–I’ll share with you an easy five-step plan for attracting–and holding on to!–a real loser.
It is not often that one so young has such a giant intellect. Take, for example, Petey Bellows, my roommate at the university. Same age, same background, but dumb as an ox. A nice enough fellow, you understand, but nothing upstairs. Emotional type. Unstable. Impressionable. Worst of all, a faddist. Fads, I submit, are the very negation of reason. To be swept up in every new craze that comes along, to surrender oneself to idiocy just because everybody else is doing it—this, to me, is the acme of mindlessness.
