Isn't it amazing and miraculous that feelings like this exist in the world? And not only once, but more than once, because I know exactly how she feels. And at the same time, really horrible things can also exist in the world in multiples. And then some really boring things exist in great amounts as well.

And the girl who was sobbing in the market yesterday exists in the world. And bringing water and giving taxi money is all I could really do, stranger to stranger, in a way. Well I could've done more, but I didn't.

And all these things exist right next to each other, as if they didn't completely contradict each other or explode upon contact. Hurricanes, lipstick, Mars probes, iPhones, Gossip Girl, wars, weddings, football, lolcats, the holidays, and unknown unnamed asteroids headed our way.

It's a good thing we're a little dumb and can't reconcile these things. It makes it easier to simply put each in its own independent world that exists to the exclusion of all the other things.

But, for the record, I'm utterly grateful, outraged, annoyed, content, sad, and amazed in alternating minutes of the day.
