January 2nd

Today, like so many days, my heart said, “Eat popcorn for dinner.” But then another inner voice took over. It said, “For the love of God, eat something that an adult might eat for dinner.” And so I did. I looked up a recipe for German potato salad, and I made it, and I ate it. The fact that I later made popcorn anyway does not, I hope, detract from this moment of clarity and maturity I had.
