I am so spiteful. I see recollective Sunday brunches among friends, and I want to walk up to them and ask “You’re all best buds? Really? You’re all ready and willing to bear the weight of love’s deep and defuse obligations? Oh, word? It’s not just that you’ve self-selected from this sinking ship the people most amenable to your personal brand of resentment and narcissism–your mimetic desire–to float on in a life raft together over bitter water for at least as long as supplies last?” Then I chokeslam myself through their table.
