“Of course I had considered volunteering. I think that once you know what something is, you have considered it. I’m far too solipsistic not to apply myself to every scenario that crosses my path.  I remember the day I found out what an enema was, what spelunking was, that Asian women plucked their underarm hair, that the Golden Gate Bridge was an iconic springboard for suicides. I immediately considered jumping off it.”

  1. Does the jumping off the bridge part relate to finding out what an enema was?

    Well it just made me chuckle that she imagines herself in every scenario, from enemas to suicides I guess!
