My sister Karin spent the night at our house for the Martin Luther King, jr holiday. I made it a true day of service by listening compassionately to her dating woes (she’s twenty-one! and prospect-less!) and giving her my finest advice: Buck up, Baby! One day you’ll meet someone and all your fears about not being able to love someone enough will seem crazy and two weeks later you’ll be engaged. It’s like in Knight and Day (a surprisingly entertaining movie) when Tom Cruise’s character does the with me/without me thing (it’s at 1:14). Someone, someday will make the “with me” thing seem like the best idea ever, an idea you don’t even have to think about.
Or you’ll stay single and travel the world. Either way.
