Gift from Virgo
By Ruth McCormack
It started as a bit, and, really, I’ve got to stop falling in love for laughs. It always gets real and I should know better, but when Rachel saw a guy from work on Tinder, of course I said, “Oh my god, he’s like so handsome, I’m gonna swipe right all over his cute face.” I’m the last single one of my friends, maybe of all humans anywhere, and I do this boy-crazy bit so nobody thinks I’m lonely. The bit always gets out of hand, and now I notice my office crush all over, and I call him the OC so I can do this bit about Arrested Development where I say, “Don’t call him that.” Ugh, bits, I know, but he is really handsome, and nice, and it makes me all fluttery to even look at him, but when I do his eyes are kind of hazel or something. It always gets real.
