"Let X equal the quantity of all quantities of X. Let X equal the cold. It is cold in December. The months of cold equal November through February. There are four months of cold, and four of heat, leaving four months of indeterminate temperature. In February it snows. In March the Lake is a lake of ice. In September the students come back and the bookstores are full. Let X equal the month of full bookstores. The number of books approaches infinity as the number of months of cold approaches four. I will never be as cold now as I will in the future. The future of cold is infinite. The future of heat is the future of cold. The bookstores are infinite and so are never full except in September...” -Proof, David Auburn


Sometimes, I just can't decide.
I just wander around and wait.
Wait for something. But for what?
I can't seem to put my finger on it.
Perhaps divine intervention?
repentance?
exception?
suspension? You tell me.
For making decisions is all we do.
Every step forward is a yes or no.
And every step back.
People look at me, screaming, Make up your mind!
I bite my lip and my pulse quickens.
So I close my eyes, hold out my arm and spin furiously, leaving the decision up to fate.
Don't judge me, it's how I learn.
I spin the bottle and kiss my date.
