Today is an odd day.
Today is the anniversary of one of the biggest, most nerve-wracking moments of my life. At this moment, it feels bittersweet to remember that one year ago I took a step outside of my comfort zone and tried something that ultimately did not work out but gave me more knowledge about who I am as a person.
Today is also the anniversary of the unrelated Romantic Man Buffet. December 5 of every year marks a time when beings from all realms can wander into this galaxy and search for the rift in space time that leads to the Romantic Man Buffet. Legend has it that this glorious buffet features all forms of love, all founded by Romantic Man. Romantic Man needs no explanation, of course, we all learned about him in elementary school. Obviously.
Now, which of these events is more important to me personally? It's a tough call, but I think Romantic Man Buffet wins. We have so much more to discover in our galaxy, our solar system...but Romantic Man Buffet has been one of NASA's secret top priorities for decades.
Legend has it that once you enter Romantic Man Buffet, you will be bestowed with one special power that is so subtle it may take you decades to detect it. For example, you may be given the power to slightly alter traffic light colors to odd shades of red, yellow, and green. Further, you may be able to flip somebody off with a very light 'honk' sound that is nearly inaudible. You may also be able to have Metallica rise from the ground wherever you want them to.
The best part about the hunt for Romantic Man Buffet is it takes place during months where many humans celebrate holidays. This means any alien life form will automatically be fully decked out with all December holiday gear. Even Joe Jonas knows this.
Legend also has it that Romantic Man Buffet has only one type of food - fish burritos. Everyone in the universe loves this food. It's written into the DNA of even the smallest organism that may or may not possess DNA. What everyone wants is the love that the buffet has to offer. There are all types of love, including boom tri-laughter love - where you love someone so much that you grow three heads that are all very ticklish. There is also a love called YOLO Bing love where you maintain only one life but you can eternally view your lover through Bing's viewpoint. Then there are vanilla classics like "Family Love" that is very rare and comes with complementary infomercials featuring your whole family.
Happy Romantic Man Buffet day! Maybe this year some life form will truly discover it.
