“In the old days I would say, for example, “It’s raining.” In the future I will say, “It is raining right now, right here, outside and not inside. Visually it appears to be a liquid substance that I believe without the benefit of controlled studies to be water. I do not intend this statement to be unpatriotic. I am not proposing that you drink it or roll around in it. The rain is neither good nor bad, except in the cases of recently washed cars, picnics and crops. If I have left anything off the list, the omission is not tantamount to an opinion that said omitted activity deserves to be rained on. This message is not intended to be ironic, sarcastic or arrogant.” “

” ‘Blog’ itself is short for ‘weblog,’ which is short for ‘we blog because we weren’t very popular in high school and we’re trying to gain respect and admiration without actually having to be around people.’ “

“I’d heard from a mutual acquaintance that he’d been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and didn’t have long to live. Yesterday, though, he was very much alive, sitting in the shade of an oak tree and savoring an orange popsicle. What small bites he took, letting each one slowly melt in his mouth before nibbling at the popsicle again. I thought, So that’s how you eat a popsicle when you know you’re dying.
