The Nightmare of Being

 " Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known." -1 Corinthians 13:12

"When shit becomes valuable, the poor will be born without assholes." -Henry Miller

This guy I've been talking to asked me tonight if I would be writing. I told him that I would be. He asked me on what--my phone? (My computer broke.) I said that I had taken a fine-point Sharpie from work. He commended me for grifting on the first day of my new office job. This was somewhere between an underhanded insult and a backhanded compliment.
