Your Mind, My Mind

by Ben Perreira

“Other people’s lives seem more interesting ’cause they ain’t mine.” – Modest Mouse

Not all minds are created equal. Your mind and my mind are very different. This should induce neither inferiority nor superiority. It should induce communication.

The time I dedicate to thinking about a girl I have a crush on is different from that she spends thinking about me. The same goes when you owe your friend money (one way or the other) and when you’re looking for a job.

Ergo, talk. Let me know what you need from me, I’ll let you know what I need from you. And let’s both be concise because we each have other things on our minds.
