Dear Adverbs,

   Posted by: Moses Siregar III   in Better Writing

Dear adverbs,

I used to like you, but now I know I can live without you. Occasional flings are fine–you’re still cute–but I’m better off on my own. Move onto younger lovers. Find someone you can still impress. I would say, “It’s not you, it’s me,” but it’s you. You’re flabby and vain. Take a hard look at yourself. Discipline is your friend; get serious about it and maybe we can still have casual sex.

Verily Yours,

Moses, you dog. What will people think of you, writing love letters so lustily?

It’s just words, man. Just words. Just adverbs.
