Mary Miller. Thankful we are.

We are most thankful for the Mary Miller and "I Am Sorry, Women" at The Rumpus.

"At a reading recently, my boyfriend had this conversation with multiple people:

Person at reading: So, you’re dating Mary Miller?

Boyfriend: Yes.

Person: Have you read her stories?

Boyfriend: Yes.

Person: [Walks away shaking head, feeling very sorry for boyfriend.]

People are uncomfortable with people like me, those who want to tell everything. Those who can’t keep quiet. You can do these things, and you can feel them and talk about them, but you can’t write them down. 
Just don’t write them down.

I don’t know what this essay is about anymore."
