“Is it just me, or is that guy the coolest boyfriend ever invented?"
"It’s not just you." And there was that same dull pain-the one I get sometimes when I see the two of them together and realize I’ll never have that.

And that was a hundred percent true.
But it didn’t make it hurt any less.”

wake up a dried-out, bitter old hag with plenty of science awards

sob about
how you've wasted your life.”

“There are these tiny shrimp that live in potholes in the rocks of the desert, and whenever it’s dry, they go dormant. You don’t even know they’re there. But as soon as it rains, you see them darting around in the water, as if they fell from the sky in droplets instead of just waiting around for the first sign of moisture to revive them. Tonight I was a desert shrimp. Something happened to me on a cellular level. I felt it as soon as the water reached my thighs.
