S3 ep 6: "The What If Drink" by Celena Cipriaso as published in Word Riot
Every single moment of every day we are making choices. There's an article on the internet that said humans average 35,000 decisions in a day. We know that because one of our team members chose to search for that information. They selected one link from the search results. They decided to believe it was true because it felt true. They did not to back up that choice with any further research. If we cared about the truth or our record on the facts, that team member would be reprimanded. But we don't so he wasn't. Also it was Ryan. We have decided that he's the worst.
But we make choices all the time, consciously or not. This not that. Those not these. Yes, no. Now, later. Call your boyfriend. Call him again. Do not cry. Not here. Not now. Have one more drink? Maybe just one more? Decide.
But we here at Reading Out Loud have come to one clear and resounding decision: Fuck Angel. #TeamSpike
