In My Life Is Average, people write in with anectdotes of supreme mediocrity. Such as:
"Today I left the house without locking the door. When I came back, all my stuff wasn't gone. MLIA "
"Today, I opened my closet. Didn't find Narnia. MLIA."
"I'm a security guard at a museum. Nothing comes alive at night. MLIA"
"Today, my G string snapped. I had to get a new one for my cello. MLIA "
"Today, I experimented with another guy. We were great lab partners, and will probably work together again. MLIA "
"While downloading Limewire, it asked me if I was going to use it to download music illegally. I said no. I did. MLIA. "
"Today, a spider bit me. I did not get super spidey strength."
"Today, I saw a single lady. I liked her, but I didn't put a ring on it. MLIA "
"Today, I had some Frosted Flakes. There were good, but not great. MLIA."
The tone is understated apathy. Cute.
