Everybody into the ShameShower — Now! Move it / move it / move it!

* * *

If you don’t get that big-toe callus taken care of in the next half hour I’m going to take care of it for you. [Latches and unlatches the Swiss Army Knife’s case.]

* * *

I don’t care if I have a puppy, or a perfect one-man shack in the greatest city on Earth. If I am fired, or if I quit, I’m moving to a pais hispanohablante. I will send the women I love prolix letters that remind them that they are loved. As soon as there’s a chance they’ve forgotten, another letter will appear in the mail. This applies to both romantickly and non-romantickly loved ones.

[Speaking to adorable puppy.] What is this cowering? Stop your shivering and peeing. You are loved. This is a safe space. Have some more chicken. [Tears a strip off the half-chicken on the counter and feeds it to the dog.] Though I be vegan, and obese, I still buy Safeway chicken for you every week. [With puppy-licked fingers, he tears another piece off for himself.] Let’s go into the rain, so you can shit. [Walks into bathroom and stands shirtless before the mirror for forty-five minutes.]

* * *

[Speaking to puffy, bisexual face in mirror] If I don’t shave you, darling, who will? Hmm? Hush now, and I’ll tuck you into bed in just a moment. Would you like more chocomints? [Gorges on After Eight mints and beer for an hour until he passes out]

    You are my active colleague.* You can run (jog), but you don’t have to, you’re as active either way—I’ll say it the same regardless. You cannot run from, or escape, this quality I see in you. We are already always embracing. Goodnight/goodmorning.

    *”Active colleague” is a peculiar piece of jargon that, in certain Bay Area professional circles, is used to administer “dude hug”-style blandishments upon a peer, esp. in oppressive academic, intellectual, or office environments (or, the internet) that engender solidarity amongst underlings.
