“My friend Melissa . . . picks my kids up from school, keeps them for hours while simultaneously running her own business, and organizes a parade of friends who show up on our stoop with dinner night after night . . . . At first I try to look human when people stop by, but eventually I stop. Cancer removed whatever weird barriers we sometimes have with others. A mastectomy of bullshit, my mother suggests. All the oh-yes-everything-is-great stuff eventually gets carted off in a bag of medical waste.”
-Nina Riggs, The Bright Hour
A mastectomy of bullshit.... I want one, minus the cancer. Let me just be mature enough to lop it off on my own; and let me never forget to be Melissa for my friends.
