Intimacy is never purely physical. It’s about going through the boring stuff with a person. The how was your day's, the oh, I have a dentist appointment tomorrow's, the how did your exam go's. It's all part of knowing a person inside out.
The monotony of hearing about someone’s routine is extremely important, because you then become a part of that routine by asking them about it.
Well, yes. This IS America.

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.
