The next morning (well, it...whatever), Genesis carries a stack of paper over to a seated male, who The Squiggly Hip Font of Character Introduction lets us know is "Kevin, Genesis' friend." Kevin, Genesis's friend, should forgo his leisure time sitting around that house relaxing and use it for the positive social cause of teaching Sean and Jason how to wear a white wifebeater. Because Kevin knows a thing or two about wearing the wifebeater right there. Though I doubt that Kevin, Genesis's friend, will be seeing a wife of any kind. Unless he wants to throw me in his car and cross that Vermont border again and make me his bride straightaway. It's too convenient. We can even honeymoon at Mount Slow. Hello, Kevin, Genesis's friend. Anyway, Genesis hands her friend Kevin the stack of paper, across the top of which is written "Genesisms" in that Old English font most often seen when a seventh grader writes a paper on Shakespeare and wants to make it look really, really regal. It works to the same high level of effectiveness here. Kevin, Genesis's friend, reads from what Genesis calls "an accumulation of all [her] opinions and beliefs written down into lessons that [she's] learned through [her] entire life." Kevin, Genesis's friend, comments that she's learned a lot of the lessons contained therein since she's been living in the firehouse. Here's one now: "People only hurt others because they've been hurt in the past." Another? Well, okay. "Raising your voice is only to make you feel more powerful, not for the other person to hear you better." Okay, that's enough. If y'all want more wisdom along the same hackneyed lines, next time you're going to have to get enough Chinese food to warrant three fortune cookies. Ye Olde Fortune Cookies, considering the font. Oh, damn. Kevin, Genesis's friend, reads another one, and I feel inclined to quote it because we're running off to Vermont together and I don't want him to be cranky. He can just get so cranky, sometimes. Here it is: "There are no demons that can harm you besides the demons already inside of your head." Elka ambles into the room looking particularly Catholic schoolgirl, commenting, "Cool. These are really cool, Genesis." Until, she gets to Genesism #143, "Shut up, you Catholic Schoolgirl Bitch," which, considering how aimed at the people around her these are, should be somewhere down that list.
