Eat When You Feel Sad

18/23 - Next

Robert is at home. He’s watching a DVD called Late Night with Conan O'Brien 10th Anniversary Special. He is eating spaghetti. He can feel that there is acne on his face. His legs are sweating. He pauses the DVD and turns off the TV. He fills a glass of water and goes upstairs. His room is clean. He feels happy. He checks his email. He looks at himself in the mirror. He goes to the bathroom and washes his face. He thinks about taking a shower. He looks at a book of James Thurber’s letters. He isn’t sure what to do. He thinks about putting the book of James Thurber’s letters on eBay. He goes back to his room and lies in bed. He looks at some things on his bedroom floor and thinks about whether or not he would be happier if they were put away. He gets up and throws away three receipts and puts a pair of sneakers with his other shoes in the hallway. He puts on the song Tonight is Forever by the Acid House King. Robert thinks, “I like everything about this song.” He lies in his bed and thinks about smoking marijuana. He doesn’t have any marijuana. He thinks “I am looking forward to going to a party on Saturday.” He looks out the window. He takes off his shirt, pants and socks. He thinks about brushing his teeth. He walks to the bathroom and brushes his teeth. He goes back to bed. He considers getting a fan from one of the other rooms and putting it in his room to replace his broken fan. He wonders if Jim fed the cats. He feels okay.
