Sometimes I think I need a cat. Or a dog. Or a roommate that’s around more than fifteen minutes a week.
“I just ordered a humidifier!” I instant-exclaimed to my long-distance boyfriend. “It is in the shape of a penguin! What’s its name?”
“Sterling arrived in the mail today!” I updated Janaka over the phone. “Let me read you the itemized selling points on his box, they’re great. I also took some pictures of him for my blog. Uh. I . . . take pictures . . . of my humidifier . . . for my website . . . ”
“Yeah!” he said. “COOL LIFE.”
