This is why I try to minimize my contact with the outside world…

… because every time I attempt human interaction something always inevitably goes wrong. I just got home from finally seeing Les Misérables. It’s too late and I’m too tired to write a lengthy, emotional review. But lets just say I wept. OK, fine. I was practically sobbing. The can’t catch your breath, chin quivering kind of sobbing. Shut up. I wasn’t the only one.

In fact the perfectly nice, grown man sitting next to me was crying as well. Me, being the good person that I am, offered him a tissue. Thing is, I’ve had a bit of a cold lately. So I bought this brand of tissues…

You see that? These tissues have Vicks vapor rub infused them. Great for stuffed up noses. Not so great to stick in your eyes. When he went to wipe his eyes he hissed at me… as God is my witness, he hissed… “You gave me a tissue that BURNSSSSSSSSSSSS!”

Moral of the story; don’t be nice to strangers and bring your own tissues to a tear jerker. Being a hermit looks better and better every day.

    There’s a Bukowski quote that sums up my feelings on the subject: “I don’t dislike people, I just feel better when they’re not around.”
