Please kindly step away a little bit. Even just half of a step will do. I’ve spent too long smelling other peoples’ bad breath, having their clipped nails fly onto me, getting headaches from listening to them scream on the phone and on and on. I’m sure there’s some optimum number of people the earth can support, I’m beginning to wonder how many it should. I don’t know if this can really be considered living- spending my days wedged between sad strangers. So I’ve gone and done what so many of my storybook heroes used to do: I went and carved a space out for myself. It’s not much but it’s mine, and I’d rather be thought a brute then spend another minute feeling the heartbeat of someone I don’t know on the subway. I’m still around and available to chat, but please, for the love of god, don't try to invade this little spot I've got. [Ryan Nimmo]
