People who equate truth with fact are missing the point.

But It’s a Really Good Book

76.4% of my life presented in one brief scene:

8:40 pm, couch.

Brain Part 1: I’m going to head to bed early and read a book.

Brain Part 2: First I have to clean the kitchen.

1: It’s a really good book.

2: I can’t leave the kitchen like this.

1: Seriously, this book isĀ awesome.

2: I’ll be miserable if the kitchen looks like this when I wake up in the morning.

1: I’ll be miserableĀ now if I don’t go to bed and read this book.

2: What would my mom say if she saw me walking away from this horrible kitchen?

1: Writers have to read books. Going to bed and reading is basically work.

[Argument continues for approximately the amount of time it would have taken to clean the kitchen.]

1: Whatever. I’m going to bed to finish the book.

6:30 am, kitchen.

1: I’m miserable.

2: And I finished that awesome book already.
