Valerie was smiling not because she found out that her industrial-engineering license had been approved, but because she knew if it were to spontaneously rain indoors at any point that afternoon, she would be the most prepared of anybody. “I don’t even need an umbrella,” she whispered, spitefully, to an umbrella.

Bridget’s mother always used to say it’s better to be ready for the worst than to be caught with your pants down. Not entirely sure what to do with this advice, Bridget decided to forgo pants and keep a second jacket handy. “I’ll almost certainly need a second jacket,” she thought. “And look, my hands can go in these pockets. Double pockets!” Four pockets — what more could one ask for?

“GOLD, JEWELS, BABES, FUN, PARTY, SUNSHINE, TACO BELL, TINY LITTLE CORGI LEGS.” This was running through Bruno Mars’s head as he strutted down the runway of a fashion show he wasn’t invited to but showed up at anyway. “JELL-O, TONGUE KISSING, BOGGLE, OUTDOOR SHOWER.” He assumed his fur coat would distract from the fact that he was wearing heels. It didn’t.

On Cyber Monday, Dilone woke up early so she could catch all the best deals with her Amazon Prime account. She added a stuffed dog toy to her cart, overexcited by its low price, but did not think to look again before hitting purchase. Now she had 400 stuffed dog toys and she’d be damned if she wasn’t going to find a way to use them.

As is tradition, every year on November 30, four women over the height of five-foot-nine must disrobe to their underwear and embrace each other while standing atop a makeshift table draped with gray fabric. The karmic energy created in this very moment is responsible for the production of all your second-favorite Drake songs.
