From a podcast
“I’m not gonna take it anymore,” you say and the record skips, you and it (Otis Redding) cousins on your mother’s side.
Elizabeth was so ashamed of her obese mother that she would make her meet her at the train seven blocks from school.
“I’m leaving for real,” you say and I wonder how many calories are in Marshmallow Fluff and if calories even matter at this point.
Elizabeth got her period before the rest of us, nipples chafing men’s V necks. She got excused from gym because of cramps.
You only want to eat eggplant dip and stale pita chips and frozen shrimp. You only want to see reruns of “Mad About You.”
