I understand how scissors can beat paper, and I get how rock can beat scissors, but there’s no fucking way paper can beat rock. Is paper supposed to magically wrap around rock and leave it immobile? Why the hell can’t paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can’t paper do this with people? Why aren’t sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they take notes in class? I’ll tell you why, because paper can’t beat anybody. When I play rock paper scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, oh shit, I’m sorry, I thought paper would protect you, you asshole! - Anonymous.

Better left alone

I want to write to you. Write about you. I can make you seem like the perfect foolish little thing and have everyone fall for you. Or I could play around and confuse the judgments into believing you to be someone else. Even better, I could write you to be a fiction. A dream catcher or somewhere along those lines. But you know, I am going to leave you as a blank canvas. That way nobody will ever know that I know you.
