I should start a service where you take me home to your parents so they don’t think you’re always fucking up because parents love me. I’ll be friends with your dad and enjoy small talk with your mom, get along with all of your siblings, help out around the house, etc. Even grandmas and drunk aunts like to talk to me.
IF YOU’RE GOOD AT SOMETHING DON’T DO IT FOR FREE.
There are two people you’ll meet in your life. One will run a finger down the index of who you are and jump straight to the parts of you that peak their interest. The other will take his or her time reading through every one of your chapters and maybe fold corners of you that inspired them most. You will meet these two people; it is a given. It is the third that you’ll never see coming. That one person who not only finishes your sentences, but keeps the book.
