Can we make a deal where I won’t try to save Africa in exchange for not having to feel guilty that I haven’t tried hard enough to save Africa?
I can sell you this bracelet.
Do I have to wear it?
That’s where it gets complicated.
Anyway, I think we can all agree on one thing: Thomas Friedman is a douche.
I don’t like Tom Friedman because when I google him i get the journalist & not the artist.
I read Teju Cole’s book a few days ago & quite enjoyed it. And he is one of the best tweeters out there.
The world is flat, my ass!
The world is my flat ass.
The world is my flat oyster.
I inhabit multiple worlds — all of them ostiones almendradas. Almond-crusted oysters.
Are they flat?
