Do It

Wanna Go Out?

Marc Erlbaum

Not with me. With destiny! We all have a date with destiny, and most of us have been standing her up for far too long. But destiny is a patient lover. She's used to waiting by the phone, taking selfies and posting them alluringly on her social networks, going to the movies solo, going home alone. She knows that we take a long time to get up the nerve to accept her invitation, hold her hand, abandon ourselves to her inevitable embrace. I don't know precisely what your destiny is (or my own for that matter), but I know that is not to do tomorrow what you did today. It is not to be tomorrow what you've been until now. This is why a date is called "going out," and this is what the invitation "do you wanna go out" refers to: Are you ready to leave where you were and go someplace new? Are you ready to transcend your former limitations, abandon the box that has constricted you, and go out and beyond?"
