two conversations

outside Whole Foods...

Colleague (whom I have not seen since January): You really cut your hair!

Me: Yep.

Colleague, to Nous: You have a fine looking girl there, Nous!

Me: ... ...

later, to the Rat:

Me: ...and the thing is, this is a guy who's, like, my age. And totally left-wing. I can't even.

The Rat: People get weird when navigating social niceties. Say shit they shouldn’t.

Me: This is a reason not to be social!

The Rat: Word.
