Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.

I ate the end of the green beans in the fridge. Why did you put cheese on them?

There weren't green beans in the fridge. There were cheese fries that were like three weeks old though.
Roommate One:
Why were they green?
Roommate Two:
You should probably get some Pepto.
