Life Is Really Weird

Freshman year in high school Jess and I and someone else I can't remember were playing some stupid game in study hall in the library. Something to do with randomly putting stuff down on a paper in certain categories (like car, job, etc.). Whatever you randomly pick at the end is how your life is supposed to turn out. Married to a heroin addict while driving a Yugo. Something stupid to pass the time.

Jess and I decide to put that piece of paper into what must be the most boring book in the school library, so it will go forever undisturbed and preserved. Then I click on a random Wall Street Journal article.

First sentence: Arguably the most influential work of American history is Charles A. Beard's "An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution of the United States," published in 1913.

I laughed out loud. The most influential work of American history is also two 14 year old's idea of the most boring book in the library.

I am extremely disappointed in your misrepresentation of the facts.

We were 15.
