Life is suffering — if you understand that you can truly start to appreciate the beautiful things and people in your life.

The Girl in the Flammable Skirt

Maybe it has to do with the fact that tomorrow night is a night in which all 5-10 ladies will go and hit the clubs/bars and go dancing…dancing to celebrate a future marriage, to relive college moments and to shake the ta-ta’s, but the end of this novel (literally the last line) really struck a chord with me at 5 am (while on an airplane).  I’ve disappeared for a bit and part of that disappearance was to lose my way and re-discover myself.  It’s taken a couple months for me to re-realize that I love my job and love myself, honestly.  What’s real and what’s an illusion of reality?  Either way, I’ll be dancing inappropriately with some ladies this weekend.  Holler.

 

I think of that girl I read about in the paper–the one with the flammable skirt.  She’d bought a rayon chiffon skirt, purple with wavy lines all over it.  She wore it to a party and was dancing, too close to the vanilla-smelling candles, and suddenly she lit up like a pine needle torch.  When the boy dancing next to her felt the heat and smelled the plasticky smell, he screamed and rolled the burning girl up in the carpet.  She got third-degree burns up and down her thighs.  But what I keep wondering about is this:  that first second when she felt her skrit burning, what did she think?  Before she knew it was the candles, did she think she’d done it herself?  With the amazing turns of her hips, and the warmth of the music insider her, did she believe, for even one glorious second, that her passion had arrived?

To Share My Flesh with Your Flesh

Hey Daddy-
I have an infection on my knee (from my bike fall last week). The wound isn’t super deep but I have some layers of skin to grow back and from what I have heard, I have a few weeks of healing (ugh). And if not obvious, my knee is an area where I bend, sweat, etc. This thing definitely is infected or perhaps I should say that it continues to become infected…I’ve been cleaning it once a day–combination of using soap and water, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol etc. I then change the gauze and use neosporin and rewrap it. X hours later, I feel pus on the wound/dripping down my knee and low and behold I have some nasty pus on it. If there are any prescriptions I should have, let me know? i have a feeling this will still be healing when you come to town if you want to bring anything….I’ve never a) had a cut this deep, b) had an infected wound so I’m not sure if my panic is just due to the novelty of having something pussy/porous/etc. Is it healthy to leaving it unbandaged and exposed from time to time?

If needed, I’d say the size of the wound is about the size of my thumb (maybe even two thumb sizes as far as the height).

Pics attached.

Work Emails

check out this ad agency’s website…see the guy with the bags of money who is pants less? It’s as if he’s saying, “yay, look at all my successes with SEO and SEM! My pants fell down and I don’t even care!” Do you agree?

I think we should hang out. Reasons: you seem pretty cool. Less cliche reason: I would love to make new friends to possibly eat with during my lunch hour downtown. Should you not work downtown, I still think we should hang out.

Ps. I promise I’m not this succinct in person.

Hi. I’m looking to chat with a woman in a situation where we can be completely honest. I figure since it is online and we dont live near one another it will be easier to talk openly. I have a few things I always wanted to discuss with a woman but have been too shy to discuss them. Thats also why I don’t show my face. I want it to stay a bit anonymous. Can we message a bit?

    I think I meant to say hey and then got pulled back into work. But I generally can’t tell anything about ya to gauge whether we would get along. And I’ve never been that asshole on okc but I’ve been meeting some bad apples lately and am trying to avoid replicating those situations.Sent from the OkCupid app

    It seems unlikely that a bad apple would admit to being a weirdo. Deceit is one of the defining characteristics of a bad apple. This town has a conflicted relationship with weirdness. It is full of weird for the sake of weird, but there is no consensus on how much weirdness is acceptable. At any rate I’ve only lived here since February and I have no interest in bad apples or any other euphemism for meanness. Weird, though, does pique my curiosity. Alas, the word has gone flimsy from overuse, so you might not know what I mean. I blame hipsters for debasing it with vapid iterations (ironic because the distinction of weirdness is part of their funny costume). I love the city so far, though I share your plight with bad apples. Fortunately there is an abundance of deliciousness so who needs apples anyway ;-PSent from the OkCupid app
