Instructions on How to be Human

I’m just trying to solve the problem of being human. I thought I’d write an instruction manual on how to put the world back together after it’s been destroyed, but I couldn’t get past point one. So, I changed it to how to reassemble yourself once you’ve been dismantled, but the thing is there seem to be missing parts. It’s like a jigsaw puzzle I bought for my kids at a garage sale, we didn’t know there were missing pieces until we were finished. Half a doll’s face missing. It stared at us accusingly with one eye. I have a feeling he has them – my missing pieces I think he shoved them in his back pocket and they’re wandering the streets of Seattle.
