With October 11th descending upon us, Toby and I are trying to figure out what to do to remember the year. We’re thinking about not speaking to one another for the entire day. We were thinking it might be nice to spend money every minute of the day and just have the time of our lives. We were thinking of laying out hundreds of photographs from the year and staring at them until they stop mattering. It would be great to have Justin come and sing, just for us. (If, of course, he’ll sing something by “Parallel Together” by Ted Leo). What should we do to remember 10/11? Should we fly to Vegas for dinner? Should we force everyone to remember with us? Our way?
Really, it’s just a date. It marks a year. I’m sort of hoping we have more of them. Is that enough?
