Dear Brain,

I’m reaching out because I wanted to make sure you got my last message, the one in all caps, about those spasms I was having while you were trying to sleep the other night. I get that you’re depressed, but when you’re watching The Office for five hours, hunched over on your bed like some kind of insomniac squirrel… like, you get that that affects other parts of the body, right?

See, sometimes what’s fun for you isn’t so fun for me. Sometimes it kind of threatens my ability to carry out my most basic functions and exist…

Nice Jewish college students, dinosaur-forward comedy, Sam can’t swim.
