overheard on the bus: "manchester is, like, the cleveland of england."
today i shared the story about the guy who called me fat on the bus, and a friend who knows more than i do about such things goes, "B. that was supposed to be a compliment. he liked you, and that was his come-on." and i was also, apparently, being totally culturally insensitive in assuming that everyone has the same, you know, ring code that i do. for some people, every ring is meaningful...
gahhh. of course, he didn't say that i was being culturally insensitive. but it's like - i hate it when it turns out that i'm so much less open-minded and accepting than i thought.

b: so i was SO EXCITED to get your biden text message!
k: i'm SO excited he picked biden! it was an excellent choice
b: i really want to tell my grandkids about this
b: like, "THEN, i got a text message from aunt k!"
b: and they'll be like, "don't you mean aunt SENATOR k?"
b: (this is the part where i imagine what we'll be doing in 50 years, based on what we're doing now.)
k: and then the grandkids will be like, what is a text message? why didn't you just communicate telepathically, or something
b: i think i might blog this conversation.
k: i'm for it
