So this is it. I ate my cookie. I drank a big gulp of soymilk. And now I’m writing what is most likely my last “Thinking Makes It So.”
There are some of you, I know, who are probably thinking, “Well, it’s about time. I hate this column, and yet I read it nearly every week. Why do I do that? Anyhow, it will be great to have my Thursday nights back.”
I free you, disgruntled readers! From now on, read something you truly enjoy.
Try Yann Martel’s “The Life of Pi” if you haven’t read it yet, or Chuck Palahniuk’s “Diary.” Heck, try the comics page – I love the advice column. Sometimes I try to give advice, but I don’t know how often you should call your ex-husband or what you should feel when your wife says she wants to sleep in separate rooms. Maybe read some Billy Collins if that happens. Read it in the bathtub long after the water drains away, but you still have a puddle under your back that makes a lewd sound every time you push it down.
To the ones who don’t mind reading this column so much: I will miss writing to you. I really will. Writing to you is something I truly enjoy.
But I’m moving on. I’m leaving the Monitor.
