speaking of the uncertain future, says my running inner monologue—one’s from NYU, and the purple sticks out. I can’t believe in all our games of MASH we never planned for college or nausea or friends who distract you during parties. I wonder if COLIN L played MASH at his new school and whether he wrote MAYA SHERMAN down as an option for future spouse, but maybe it’s stupid and overly sentimental to think he did. If it was possible to quest for true love or the truth on graph paper, you’d think people would have figured it out by now.
