I erased all the men off my pretend celebrity boyfriend list and filled it in with Ira Glass, host of my favorite radio show, This American Life:
My friend Drew told me that she was listening to the story on an association of professional Santas fighting amongst each other and once I had listened to that podcast, I realized that I could never again listen to anything as remarkable. Every night, I listen to about two hours and much more on the weekends. One of my favorite episodes features Russell Banks reading, “Sarah Cole: A Type of Love Story.” I remember reading that story in college and being torn between giving up on writing because I could never produce anything that amazing or writing furiously until I had a story that didn’t pale in comparison. Actually, the only real writing I’ve done lately was my latest text message, sent in the wee hours of the morning: “NU FONE. WHO DIS?”
So I ask, what are you listening to?
