My friend Jimbo was like, "Hey, you should submit that to McSweeney's!" and I was like, "Really? No. I don't know."
And then I realized that submitting it wasn't hard; it was just sending an email. Writing it wasn't even that hard. Going on 40 first dates? That part was kind of hard.
So I sent it.
And today, miracle of Valentine miracles, it's the featured story on the McSweeney's site.
Which makes me pretty happy.
