a very old, very good friend moved in this weekend, and i brought over some housewarming treats in a reusable jewel bag. and you know what she said when i gave them to her? "here, don't forget your democrat bag." love it. i love having friends who have been around long enough to re-start talking about politics, after we stopped talking about politics to save our friendship about seven years ago.
this is kind of like the time i was wearing my "army sister" sweatshirt and another friend told me that it made me look like a republican. i'm just the victim of all kinds of stereotypes, apparently.
i sat down on the bus the other morning, and an old man in a newsies-style hat said, "i see you have a book, there." this was the beginning of a conversation about how you need to have a master's degree to earn any kind of money in this city. i'm starting to feel like random conversations with strangers are kind of normal.
