The biggest mistake of your life walks into a bar. Height bestows a certain specialness and he is just tall enough to qualify as special. As usual, he attracts more attention than you. But don’t be scared—everyone’s creative, at least when they’re drunk. When you were five you were practically an artistic genius. You were also powered by positive emotion and social connection. You’ve traded emotions for emoticons. How many people can happily long to be alone? How long can you be alone and happy? You wish you had thrown all his stuff in the ocean. You’ve never even been to the ocean. Even though it’s free, and always will be.
