Playing Doctor




Initial Visit?

Thursday, October 27

Bare-ly Legal

I just got home from work. After a 26 hour shift, there is nothing better than a bowl of cream of rice, steaming hot so you have to blow on each spoonful to prevent you from scalding your tongue. It sticks to the sides of your stomach and warms you as you drift into sleep, dreaming of blood counts and chest x-rays.





Even though I had to swing by the Superette around the corner for some milk, I can say my fridge is not as bare as this one.


That apple does look good though, doesn’t it?

I want to put caramel on it.

That is a sad, sad fridge. It can be a metaphor for way too many bad things.

"...staring into the refrigerator

as if into the place where the answers are kept--

the ones telling you why you get up in the morning

and how it is possible to sleep at night,

answers to what comes next and how to like it."

I love the scene in Swingers where Mikey is on the phone and he walks into the kitchen and turns off the light to open the refrigerator.

I think everytime I feel the desire to stare into the refrigerator looking for the answer to the meaning of life, I'll turn the light off first. That's Zen, baby.
