theres a news story today about a guy in malibu who was strangling a pelican

art on sunset

most people probably think omg malibu is such a heavenly place
i cant believe that something would tick off a guy there
and make him turn into such an animal.

but you never know what will push someone over the line.

i dated a girl for a short period of time who hated my kitchen sink

it had this quirky thing that as soon as you turned on the hot water
it would make this terrible sound at first.
the only way to stop the sound was to turn it on high.
medium upset it for some reason

which upset her.

“you have such a great place, but this sink! no wonder you dont do your dishes.”

one night she was upset at me for something or another
and she stormed off to the kitchen to make some tea.

and she turned on the faucet and that sound croaked and she put on her jacket
and boots and sped home
leaving the sink running!

this morning i thought of her
because miraculously the sink fixed itself last week.
no really, fixed itself.

like a man whos had hiccups for 10 years
and suddenly theyre gone.
