I’m like you guys, once a week I like to slip into a deep existential depression where I lose all sense of oneness and self-worth. And what I like to in order to assure myself that I’m unique and I’m not just one of many small, white indistinguishable perfectly cylindrical checker pieces in Jesus and Satan’s backgammon game, is I will say a group of words that I think no one has ever said in that order so that when I say it I feel like “Look at me, participating in this new moment no one’s ever been a part of.” So I’ll say something random like “peanut butter tribadism” or “I’m your father and I loved your comedy show.”
