You, Me, and the Apple Tree

3 Aug

If I could give high school graduates one piece of advice – this fantasy is predicated on me being allowed in high schools AND not vomiting at entering one – it would be this: if you happen upon something in this life that you do not like but it is not dangerous or immoral, fucking ignore it. There is no need to add your reedy voice to the Greek chorus of people bitching about their cold lattes on Twitter.

    I generally agree but there’s still room for well-reasoned criticism, right?

      Yes, I think so. But I also think that few people are capable of that, you know?

        I personally find Olivia Munn both dangerous and immoral, so I will continue to rail against her on the interwebs whenever I watch a new episode of the Newsroom.

    You do you, neighbor. I just don’t think I have enough room in my mind for all the things I don’t like – I would probably have an aneurysm. Also my parents never told me I was special so I don’t think anyone cares about my opinions.
