You have to write as if everyone involved in the story is dead.
What we read and why we do so defines us in a profound way. You are what you read, I suppose. Browsing through someone’s library is like peeking into their DNA.

[Photograph: Top, Jack in the Box, all others, Erin Jackson] When Jack in the Box re-introduced their “Munchie Meals”—multi-item combos aimed at late-night diners—I knew it would only be a matter of time before I’d be making a trip…
When I was in college, I worked nights at a shitty retail shop. I was often there very late, folding polo shirts to an oddly high standard for a shitty retail shop. After work, I would go home and do a lot of reading. (A LOT of reading — I was a double major and one of them was fucking English Literature.) To get through the night, I’d consume a Coca Cola and sometimes some terrible-for-me food.
These late-night-only Munchie Meals from Jack in the Box immediately make me nostalgic for college, but even 20-year-old me would have known better than to order any of this junk. Why would you put a mozzarella stick on an already deliciously terrible chicken sandwich?! Who the hell wants regular fries when seasoned curly fries are only 39 cents more?! Things have gone seriously downhill since the early aughts.
Sometimes, I fall more in love with an echo than the real thing.
