Attempt to improve your punctuation, learn sign language via YouTube videos. Think long and hard about the consequences of the decisions of reality TV show contestants. Marvel at how bad their decision making skills are when simple logic points to the road they didn’t choose. Feel good about yourself that you would have made a better decision in that situation. Make up a sad dance to commemorate the empty bag of trail mix you found in your freezer. Not quite empty, but peanuts are filler and they are a waste of time.

Hobart buddy Mary Hamilton’s “Things to do when you are lonesome,” from Necessary Fiction, curated this month by upcoming SF/LD author, Jess Stoner. (And, really, every sentence in this short is deserving of snagging as an excerpt. You should really, really, really read the whole thing. Like, right now.)
