what I learned about Facebook from a summer fling
I probably shouldn’t have gone back to his place. But I was leaving the next morning, and I didn’t want to leave him a moment before.
A proper evangelical lady would say that she regretted staying the night at his place.

Things people said to me, that I thought you should hear.
Les Chretiens sont d’abord des humains. —Anne
Becoming a man, it takes longer. We don’t have the sense of what we’re here for. —Matthew
It’s a challenge, because it’s always with you. —Micheline
I think a healthy marriage involves mutual respect toward each other, but it also requires a certain degree of self-respect. That through the rough times, you’re going to stick it out and deal with it, not sit in the corner and cower and let [yourself] be abused. Choosing to stay married during hard times is in large part a choice of self respect. —Crista
It’s people with the most amount of privilege that practice the least amount of discretion when it comes to…everything. —Dan
You can’t run on croissants. —Anne, again
I woke up this morning in a bed twice the size of the one I used to sleep in, back when I had a permanent address.
It was raining, yesterday, but the sunlight today was streaming through the lace curtains, making filigree patterns upon the duvet. My unfinished glass of rum cider was perched on the hardback memoir I bought for five dollars at a Portsmouth bookshop. Downstairs, my innkeeper friend was making pumpkin bread…I could smell it.
I closed my eyes for a minute.
If I’d had my way, I wouldn’t be here now.
