feat. conan

That night in the hotel room I watched Conan O'Brien's final show, my fingers catching and flicking mixed nuts (bullshit, locally sourced brazil nuts from Massachusetts?).

“All I ask is one thing, and I’m asking this particularly of young people that watch: Please do not be cynical. I hate cynicism. For the record, it’s my least favorite quality - it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen. I’m telling you, amazing things will happen.”

(clap clap clap)

I turned off the light and repeated it in my head, or maybe I even said it aloud.

Amazing things will happen.
