i didn't really like this one tbh. old man who has brain cancer (?) decides to kill himself by freezing to death in the woods; some kid who lives in his own fantasies tries to bring his coat, then falls in the lake; old man has to save the kid but of course, it turns out, the kid has saved him

The thing about girls? Suzanne said. Is we are more content-driven.

Had he been crying just now?

I think crying is healthy, Suzanne said. It means you’re in touch with your feelings.

Ugh. That was done, that was stupid, talking in your head to some girl who in real life called you Roger.
