Stall, wart, grow no more!
Thine eyes, no wait, my eyes!
And to that hardworking hair growing out of you, wart, I curse every bit of it!
You’ve been burned time and again – reliable as ever you return.
Do not expand, invade, or grow offspring. Just stall, wart, stall!
Thank you, thank you.
Ode to the wart family.

She seems nice…
I like when I’m with another person, let’s say I’m with my friend, Steve, and we run into someone I know, let’s say her name is Samantha, and I introduce Steve and Samantha to each other, then we chat for a few brief moments and part ways.
Moments later – Steve says, “She seems nice.”
It always comes across to me as – she seems nice. But, yeah… I’m not buying it.
Then I could say something like – “Samantha gave her extra kidney to a stranger, started a charity that has fed over a billion people, and composts everything in her little studio apartment.”
Steve’s response would be – “That sounds nice.”
So, I say, “We can still catch happy hour at Threes Brewery if we hurry. It could be fun.”
“No, it will be fun; the best thing I’ve heard all day,” Steve says.
Later that night, Samantha calls, and before hanging up, she says, “Your friend Steve seems nice.”
“Yeah, he’s an ass.”
