"The next time I talk to you, there will be a Mason-Dixon line between us."
- Rick Shanley, now at Emory University in Atlanta Georgia.
Something struck me just now. I bought toothpaste the other day. This may not
seem like a big deal to you. But first off you don't realize how many
diferent kinds of toothpaste there are. And when you are guided by you
instinct that "Rick, toothpaste is pretty much toothpaste" and your
inclination to take very good care of your teeth you run into a dilemma.
The choice becomes "do I pick one at ramdom and submit to the power of
subliminal advertising or do I find the cheapest toothpaste that is
approved by the ada?"
and secondly I had never bought toothpaste before, at least not by
....but I was running low.
These are the things that occupy my mind. People around me fuss over
GPA's and majors. Others email me with worries about what they will do
this summer. Some worry about applying to med skool. Some law skool.
Others are busy getting a sheepskin that demonstrates their qualification
for a high paying job. There are those who want to save the world, from
itself, from themselves, from others, from me.........
........I and I think to myself that I went to buy some toothpaste....
