Because sometimes you need a little quantum physics to figure out if you have a boyfriend or not.
Casey Williams, a junior at the local university, has been worried about her relationship with her boyfriend Ken for awhile now. “We’ve sort of been a thing for a few months, and I’m not sure what we are,” Williams said. She said she has been putting off defining the relationship out of fear that she won’t get the answer she wants. “Right now, I’m living simultaneously with the possibility of us seriously committing to each other and just going our own way,” she said. “It isn’t great, but I’m afraid I won’t like what I see when I check for this relationship’s pulse, you know?” Williams isn’t the only girl in the world with a potentially dead cat on her hands. It is reported that even today there are thousands and thousands of people who are too afraid to check whether or not they actually have a relationship. (Williams checked her phone to see if Ken had texted her back. He hadn’t. When she looked up, she seemed a little frazzled.) “I know I should check, I know I should check,” she said. “But right now this quantum superposition is all that’s getting me through!”
