We’ll send you a rundown of the top five stories every day

Well, the world didn't end yesterday. And now that today is just another day, sun still shining, world still turning, humanity still existing, I’ve got a bit of a mess to clean up.

To Do Today 

1) Tell my boss that I was totally kidding and I really, really still want my job.

2) Tell my mom that of course I take full responsibility for all of my personal failings and am fully aware that to do otherwise would be absurd. Tell her I’m sure I came out of the womb this neurotic.

3) Get tested and make sure that stranger didn’t give me AIDS on our end-of-the-world date. 

4) Buy a pregnancy test. 

5) Have a doctor check me out and make sure that cocktail of random street drugs I finally had the courage to try didn’t permanently damage my heart or brain.

6) Call my high school science teacher and apologize, tell her I don’t really hope the end of the world is “especially painful for her.” Never mind. I still mean that one, even if it’s not the end of the world yet. 

7) Go to the grocery store with a note of apology explaining that I’ve always wanted to trash a supermarket, and a blank check to cover the damage.

8) Get a second job to cover the cost of the supermarket damage, assuming I still have my first job.

9) Ask the grocery store for surveillance footage of me doing snow angels in the produce and smashing jars of tomato sauce with a baseball bat, because if I have to pay for it, I should be able to relive it.
