Following morganth is not for everyone.
People who are allergic to BODY ONCE TOLD ME jokes should not follow morganth.
Side effects of following morganth may include mild amusement, bafflement, and reinforcement of the stereotype that people who live in #NYC can’t shut up about NYC.
Ask your doctor if following morganth is right for you.
And in looking up if that crazy driving leads to more car deaths in Michigan, I learned that states with high car deaths vs. states with low car deaths maps pretty well to red states vs. blue states.
I’d forgotten the way that Michigan drivers will only allow one car length between cars, even at 80 MPH. Terrifies me. When I lived here, I yearned for a bumper sticker that would say, “If you want to get this close to my ass, you have to buy me a drink.”

Now I will consider my cat Sir Ian.
For he knows he's not allowed in the bedroom at night.
For he likes to play a game where he sneaks in there anyway, and hides, in the hopes that we won't realize he's there and will let him stay.
For it's impossible to get mad at him for that because we know he's only doing it because he loves us and wants to spend the night with us.
(Yes, I had to haul him out from under the bed last night. But I assured him I wasn't mad at him.)

I do a walk at lunchtime every day, to satisfy the demands of my Apple Watch. Today I walked by a whole crowd of people staring at a building across the street. I couldn’t see anything to stare at, but I heard the word “jumped”.
Turns out a guy committed suicide by jumping off of that building. I found it in the news. What they were watching was the police dealing with the aftermath.
I don’t really have a point here; I just needed to get that out.
“morganth”, from the Latin “mor”, meaning “a greater amount of”, and “ganth”, meaning “terrible BODY ONCE TOLD ME jokes”.
