If you could put anything in one of those little red candy machines that takes pennies, what would you put in there? IT doesn't have to be candy.
probably different colored smoke that you’d put it in the palm of your hand to inhale, allowing you to be inside one of my dreams. my dreams are pretty weird. I feel like a penny might be too cheap. Sand dollars only.
My mouth dried and I pretended to keep smiling. Why do we pursue information that we know will never leave our heads? I was inviting a permenent, violent guest into my home. He would defecate on my bed. He would shred my clothes, light fires on the walls. I could see him walking up the driveway and I stood at the door, knowing that I’d be a fool to bring him inside. But still I opened the door. -Dave Eggers
