That’s Not the Same Thing at All

Me: “I found a productive way to channel my Trump anxiety. While I’m running on the treadmill, I tell myself that if I make it to the 3 mile mark at full sprint, he will be impeached. Then I make it to 3.5. Win for my body, win for my mental health, win for America.”

Eric (excitedly): “Oh! I used to do the SAME THING when I was in high school! I told myself that if I could get 100 points on a Snood level, I’d get 100 on my test and wouldn’t have to study. So I’d play hours and hours of Snood trying to get the score. But then I didn’t have time to study.”
