The days leading up to my senior homecoming dance were looking just like every other high school dance season: my dress had been picked long before my date. My friends, desperate to make sure I was part of the night’s festivities, posted a list of potential date qualifications on my locker. Thus, “The Great Aubrey Date Search” began.
This list became my go-to checklist for dating, and it was something I referenced often during my college years:
While I am opposed to all orthodox creeds, I have a creed myself; and my creed is this. Happiness is the only good. The time to be happy is now. The place to be happy is here. The way to be happy is to make others so. This creed is somewhat short, but it is long enough for this life, strong enough for this world. If there is another world, when we get there we can make another creed. – Robert Green Ingersoll
