A partial list of things I should probably tell every prospective girlfriend

• My 401k is a burlap sack of old cheeses that I’m hoping will at some point grow some kind of medically useful, patentable mold.

• When it comes time for us to argue, I hope you know that I have no problems taking complete responsibility for my utter inability to make mistakes.

• Sometimes, I’ll come around the corner, and my cat will be on the bed, in her favorite spot, where she usually is, and it’ll scare me half-to-death. That’s just the Navy SEAL training at work, babe.

• I assume all instances of the phrase “I’m counting on you” are veiled threats, and I will not negotiate with terrorists.

• I am one of 11 living people on Earth who actually enjoys turnips. As a group, we meet annually in Toronto for a drunken, root-based bacchanalia and orgy. You will not be invited to come.

• If you can’t handle me at my worst, then that makes two of us. I’ll get the Scotch.

• There are times I love, and other times I hate, wearing flip-flops.

• Over the coming holidays, please keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I’m not going to be going anywhere dangerous; I’m just a narcissist.

• I only watch porn that passes the Bechdel test.
