The first time you fall in love it’s such a transcendental feeling, you know, it’s like eating pizza-flavored ice cream. Your brain can’t even process that level of joy. And love makes people do crazy things, like kill people, or shop at Crate & Barrel. It makes us all a little delusional. I think our whole lives, no matter how low our self-esteem gets there’s some part of us that thinks, “I have a secret special skill that no one knows about, and if they knew, they’d be amazed.” And eventually we meet someone who’s like, “You have a secret special skill!” And you’re like, “I know! So do you!” And they’re like, “I know!” And then you’re like, “We should eat pizza ice cream together.” And that’s what love is. It’s this mountain of pizza ice cream and delusion.

Sleepwalk with me 

Falling in love for the first time is a completely transcendent experience. It’s like eating pizza-flavored ice cream. Your brain can’t even process that level of joy. Love makes people do crazy things like kill other people or shop at Crate & Barrel. I think on some level it makes us all delusional. Deep down, our whole lives, no matter how low our self-esteem gets, we think, I have secret special skill that no one knows about and if they knew they’d be amazed. And then eventually we meet someone who says, ‘You have a secret special skill.’

And you’re like, 'I know! So do you!’

And they’re like, 'I know!’

And then you’re like, 'We should eat pizza ice cream together.’ And that’s what love is. It’s this giant mound of pizza flavored ice cream and delusion.

I really feel like our whole lives, no matter how low our self esteem gets, there’s a part of us that thinks, ‘I have a secret, special skill that no one knows about.’ And, eventually, we meet someone who’s like, 'You have a secret, special skill.’ And you’re like, 'I know! So do you!’ And that’s love.”

And that’s love – it’s a mountain of pizza-flavored ice cream. And delusion.
