I’m scared that I smell like popcorn without having been exposed to any.

Drugs are my anti-drug
Chris: why, why, why is this a thing that you feel you need to say
Leah: oh, i've learned to say my paranoias out loud so that people can refute them rather than letting them sit inside me and fester with no reality check

skybarn: Summer movies are going to be escapist and sequels/reboots/remakes have been happening for centuries. Shakespeare was at least the 4th person to tell the story of Romeo and Juliet.

Leah: maybe it's because i heard [colleague] that one time say to a girl "do you like applebees?" as a pickup line
Jean: It's not even... funny. Like the Olive Garden or Chili's
Leah: but maybe it's just because it's sad
Jean: Yes, and the food there is by far the worst too
