Best thing I’ve read this morning. Reminds me of childhood. From Bill over @ http://dubiousquality.blogspot.com/

Form Factors
“She’s looking through her purse,” Eli 16.5 said.

There’s a huge stack of receipts, business cards, etc. on Gloria’s desk

“She’s not looking,” I said. “That’s an excavation. Look at what she’s pulling out of there: concert ticket stubs from the 1990s, gum from a previous decade, receipts from childhood visits to the dentist–”

“Have actually pulled out none of those things,” she said.

“That’s not a purse,” I said. “It’s a hovel in a different form factor.”

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
