"Everything Old is New Again" (旧的变成新的)

   I’ve told the same story for the past ten years. I’ve perfected it now, and it’s funnier than the original incident. The best part about taking a new lover is not the thrill of getting to know one another, but getting to brush off dusty tales and tell them like new. I’m addicted to hearing the laughs and the sighs and to seeing eyes crinkle when I get to the punch line. It doesn’t stop at stories. Whenever I am tired of my wardrobe, I simply go shopping for a new boyfriend. I pluck imaginary price tags from this yellowing dress and head off to giggle on my thousandth first date. It really is a lot easier on your wallet. I can’t recommend it enough. My mama says this isn’t the best strategy for lifelong happiness, but who needs love when you have an endless stream of new? Just punch in the code and a stale quip will tumble out just in time for your lips to form old words with fresh charm.
