How do you talk to a child who's about to lose a pet?
I mourned New York, the relationship, my friend.
He landed with a surprising smack on the board, between two game pawns.
The kittens, like a classmate crush, made me feel better through their distant presence and consistent cuteness.
It felt like a rite of passage to have a story about being chased by dogs
I committed a venial sin and checked my phone in church, only to see an email that stressed me out, which was obviously God telling me not to check my phone in church.
Eventually mom and I left (before church was over, there’s only so much we can take).
