This week I was interviewed about ‘Mostly Blue Eyes’ (attached below). The host of the interview (which lasted a mammoth hour and a half- probably the most I have talked consecutively) asked me how long I have been alone… or rather what is the longest I have been alone for. My answer was, now. Now is the longest.
Then I read on the back of a sanitary wrapper that you produce the same chemicals when eating chocolate as you do when you’re falling in love. It’s called phenylethylamine (PEA). So I went and bought some chocolate. I ate the whole bar. I felt sick. I still do, but when I got home I found some more and ate it all. It’s almost like I have been consumed (in the two hours that I’ve known about this) with the idea that other things can replace love.
I’m excited for the next time I feel it.
