(12:00 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Friday Afternoon Confessional: The Bible doesn't mention usI confess that I routinely go far too long without getting a haircut. It is such a world-historical event that everyone notices, even bartenders and clerks at Walgreens. I confess that every time, I think to myself, "Maybe I should go closer to once a month rather than once per quarter," but I never follow through.
I confess that I am similarly negligent about shaving, which I only do if I have a date or, failing that, if the itchiness becomes distracting.
I confess that I really don't want to clean the bathroom.
I confess that I could easily turn around and rewrite the chapter draft I finished yesterday. Moving forward is probably the best strategy for now.
I confess that I can imagine what it would be like to be a sports fan and it seems like it would be a fun thing, but the time commitment deters me.
I confess that I often marvel at the persistence of internet trolls. Think what a different place the world would be if we all had such sociopathic fervor!
