Go to these shows or Syphilis will consume your brain
Hey! Remember the time I worked at that news company?
I wrote spiffy articles that suggested where to go and what to do for the weekend.
I sometimes threatened peoples’ bodies and warned them they may face a horrible demise if they decided not to go out.
That doesn’t matter.
What does matter is that you now know (as of, like, right now) I’m doing that again, but on a way smaller scale.
No, no. I’m not doing this for them anymore. I’m moving up!
I’m doing this for myself because, well, I love myself…
