otp: you can explain art to me

When [my mother] got sick, B.J. came to Boston to visit her in the hospital, and he did something I will always be profoundly grateful for. He did for her what he had done for me when I was a nervous, homesick, heartbroken New York transplant hired on my first writing job on season 1 of The Office. He made her laugh.

And that is why B.J. and I are soul mates, and the reason is… because in terms of the soul, we like to… That doesn’t make any sense. We’re soup snakes. B.J. and I are soup snakes.
