This morning at 230 or so I thought I saw a really precisely coiled cloud of smoke on the other side of my bed and apparently I started backing away and yelling and then fell out of bed and hit my elbow on the side of my bed and man that was weird huh

Do you masturbate?

Your explanation

It should be stated that on the one hand, LBJ got us involved in Vietnam, and tore this country apart. On the other hand, he was personally responsible for the Civil Rights Act, the NEA, the NEH, school lunches for kids who couldn’t afford them because 1) everyone should be able to get a meal and 2) how the fuck are you going to ever learn if all you are is hungry? Have you ever been hungry? Like really and truly hungry? It’s fucked you guys. Also Medicare, Medicaid, more funding for PBS, Consumer protection services like cigarette warnings and food safety standards, about a dozen environmental protection acts. Anyway, LBJ was pretty complicated.

Do you ever date to avoid being alone?

After a sexual encounter, would you ever tell your partner that they were “the best you’d ever had” if it was not true?

  • No.

Your explanation

When she woke up she put the coffee on and after she put the coffee on she poured that coffee into an enamel mug and tipped into it some milk and as it blossomed and bloomed inside the mug she drank it right down.

After the coffee she stood for a moment staring at the sun and went out to the porch to sweep but the boards began to creak so she walked across the yard and plucked a crow from the tree and unraveled that crow like a clementine and cooked its flesh in her mouth and then ate it.

When she finished the crow she repaired to the porch and spat nails from her mouth and the nails fixed the creaky boards. After that she swept for miles.
