Do you ever think about jumping in front of the train?

What’s the right answer? No?

Never? You’re never stood on the platform thinking to yourself, you know, if I just jumped right now I wouldn’t have to go do laundry in the morning. I wouldn’t have to make a spare set of keys after I’m done with laundry. I wouldn’t have to go grocery shopping after that. I wouldn’t have to go to my neighbor’s going away party or to brunch with my mother next weekend. I wouldn’t have to be reminded of my inadequacies all day long and I wouldn’t doubt every stupid decision that I make. I wouldn’t have to pick out a new outfit every day or hear a car alarm ever again. It would be quiet and I would be alone.

I think you need to get out of New York.
