dignitylessness

—Oh my god, fuck that, seriously

—Fuck what?

—Everything. The whole deal.

—No, it can’t be everything. Including this? Us?

—Sweetie, when I’m feeling all maudlin and apocalyptic, nothing is spared.

—Not even me? What about the rod? What of the child???

—OK. I’ll make three exceptions: I’ll spare you, the rod, and the child. [A beat.] [Say, that’s a pretty funky beat!!] No, fuck it. The child will not be spared.

—Wellppppppppppppp me and the rod are a start.
