Amazon doesn’t know me at all. Or, possibly they know me inside and out and are mocking my mopey teenage angst.
Just as I am lamenting my lot in life: to grow old alone, all the while knowing that the most important thing in this world is building a life with the one who you love and who loves you back, and that work, that next email, a new car, whether the couch matches the throw pillows — none of it matters in comparison. Just then, amazon suggests:
The Ultimate Wedding Album (Audio CD) ~ Various Artists (May 14, 2009)
Really, amazon? That’s what you think I’m looking for right now?
To their credit, they also recommended David Sedaris’s “When You Are Engulfed in Flames”, which I not only own, but think about its title often (including today) as a description of my life.
I don’t know whether to call amazon and ask them for life advice or close my account and throw my kindle in the ocean.
