Amy said she wanted to go unshopping. I repeated the word 'unshopping' back to her with a question mark at the end because I really didn't have a clue what she was talking about. But Amy was already on to the next thing. She wanted to fight bio-piracy, assist cancer survivors, start her own aid agency, help a goat revolution. All I wanted to do was eat pizza and make out. I didn't think we had any kind of future.
