I had a new piece on McSweeney’s this week based off a meme, which is not something I thought I would ever write. People seem to like it, and it was VERY fun to write. I did a first draft, got some feedback, then I waited about a month before doing the rewrites on it and submitting it. I felt like I needed a little more space to insert some of the more “serious” jokes in the piece and make sure there was a balance. I still ended on this ridiculous image, which seems to be weirdly resonating with readers:

Yeah, sex is cool but have you ever told your work that you had a doctor’s appointment, implied it was somewhat serious, and then spent the better part of an afternoon wandering around a Marshall’s farting and looking at discounted pans?
