Hey kids! Are you bored? Complacent? Stupid? Why not impulsively move to a new town? (Just like Nina did!) Try to make friends with people you don't like! Blah blah blah wasted blah blah blah such a bitch blah blah blah my new outfit blah blah â€¦.. What a jerk! I hope she likes me! Find new profundity in lyrics of songs about moving! And come the day you'll hear them sayin' They're throwin' it all away Nothing left to say Just throwin it all away.* *Lord Grenville by Al Stewart. Sob. Entertain romantic illusions about your former town! I wish I were back in Santa Cruz where life was perfect and everyone loved me. Desperately search for a cheap flight home! $900?! That's the cheapest you've got?! If you can wait two weeks we can get you a cheaper ticket, ma'am. 2 weeks?! This is an emergency! Freak out! I wanna go home!!
"Food Poisoning". One afternoon at a business lunch â€¦ Bargain negotiate. Wheel deal. That night â€¦. My housemates drove me to an emergency room at 2am â€¦ Our Lady of Patriarchal Domination. This is the only place that's open. We'll do a pro-choice demonstration outside while we wait for you, Nina. You poor thing. You must feel awful. We just need to take a little blood sample. Poke! This shot will make you feel better. Well, nothing shows up in your blood test, so you're perfectly well. Go home. 4am ... You were in there for hours! What did they do to you? You look like hell. They tortured me. 2 weeks later .... Hospital Charge 28.94 198.50 30.75 65.00 34.00 357.19 Let's see ... I got food poisoning at a business lunch, and then I draw a cartoon about it ... Maybe I can write it off of my taxes?
