“What I want is to be needed. What I need is to be indispensable to somebody. Who I need is somebody that will eat up all my free time, my ego, my attention. Somebody addicted to me. A mutual addiction.”—Chuck Palahniuk (via dailystendhalnitesaudade)
“I guess my life hasn’t always been happy, or easy, or exactly what I want. At a certain point, I just have to try not to think too much about certain things, or else they’ll break my heart.”—Freedom by Jonathan Franzen (via bearnaked)
Of course my dog had to poop (while walking, he.never.stopped.walking) in the middle of the sidewalk in front of the sweetest little old lady’s house, who happened to be sitting outside on her front porch (which I didn’t realize), and who happened to hear me call him a “fucking dickhead” when I realized what was going down.
So needless to say I felt like a terrible person, and still she offered to clean it up for me! What! No! But of course I didn’t have a bag. So she got one for me, but since Scout is such a beast, she had to leave it on this little post next to her porch and then go back up so I could walk over and get it. All the while telling me she would get it if I wanted.
I’m not even close to being that nice of a person now. I can only hope to be that kind of an old lady…but I’ll never offer to pick up someone else’s dog’s poop. Ever.
