me: Ehm.11:35 PM Maybe I’ll stick with my original plan and correct other people’s mistakes all my life.
friend: sounds blecky
11:36 PM me: Not if you happen to enjoy it.
Which I ususally do.
As long as the mistakes are contained in writing, that is.
11:37 PM me: And I will write poetry on my weekends and keep a cat and not dye my hair when it goes gray.
And drink a lot of tea while wearing Birkenstock clogs.
11:38 PM friend: yay
that sounds good
11:39 PM very good
me: And maybe eventually I’ll drive a Volkswagon Rabbit.
11:40 PM And generally become one of the lovely, dusty-looking people one finds in English departments.
11:41 PM friend: yes
sounds rather attractive
i might have to look into that
11:42 PM me: Yes, in an odd way, it sounds very enjoyable.
have you ever imagined what you’d look like in 20 years? 30? 40?
in 40 years i’ll be sixty.
if i never marry, i think i’d like my life to look something like the one i described above.
