So, many folks know that I’m graduating with my MFA in January–YAY me!!–and they also know that my textbooks are/have been novels (and movies and TV shows) of Popular Fiction. What does that mean? Well, there are moments of profound contemplation and there are also moments like this:
FellowStudentDan: “Resting Windowless-White-Van-Owner Face… Can we get some BuzzFeed quizes about this?”
FellowStudentVictor: “Hey kid, do you think you could show me where the freeway is?”
Me: “(quoting Victor) “The idea of an Angela Lansbury-type (minus the body-count she racked up on ‘Murder, She Wrote’)…”
Then I said: “Totally yes. She was/is the Angel of Death. See her coming on that bike of hers and RUUUUN!!! Somebody’s gonna DIIIIIEEEE!!”
FellowStudentVictor: “Seriously. If there was a common element in those cases, it was her. She brought the angel of death in that basket full of fresh produce on her handlebars….”
Victor for the WIN!!!!!!
