Ian Frazier

Now, inside every one of us is a center that contains the essence of everything we are. . . . O.K., so we imagine this inner central thing, whatever it is, to be a glowing coal, and every time we breathe in our breath causes the coal to glow more brightly, and when we exhale our whole being and the entire universe itself is gently warmed by the coal.  Let's hold that image in our minds.
Now, there are steps you must take to get in touch with your inner self, and the essential first step, as we know, is to dump your f*cking husband.

(From one of Frazier's occasional "Cursing Mommy" pieces for the New Yorker.)

"Oh, what a f*cking horrible day this has been"
