yea, that’s my dad in a members only jacket.
and the conversation that went down around taking this picture? unbelievable.
dad: why do you want to take a picture?
me: because it’s cute! it’s so adorable! I have to get a picture.
dad starts to walk
me: where are you going?
dad: i want to take a picture with this (the clock to his right)
me: why do you want the clock in the picture?
dad: because you want it because cute, i think this is cute.
this entire experience was priceless, and not just because i’m buzzed.

our stingy RD said “What’s going on eh? What the matter with Libya and Middle East? Our oil prices go up, our food go up, everything up, up, up. where it gonna go? sky’s not limit anymore, ozone broke!”

You ever feel like people only have conversations just to demonstrate how witty, clever, funny, deep, profound, current, topical, knowledgeable and with a unique opinion (they think) they are?
Also, the whole way down the stairs I was stuck thinking, we have back hair as a country? What countries/entities Are in there if Libya isn’t? What is this expression that I have never heard of before! What does it mean for something to be in or out of something else’s back hair? Can I say while I was in college and lived away from my parents, I was rarely in their (collective) back hair(s)?
typical conversation between me, carla, and me in my head.
“i’m not drunk enough”
“i want all sorts of weird foods”
“and i want to text people for sex”
“clearly i’m not drunk enough”

This de-stress tea is stressing me out
It’s distressing actually
Wow, tea, that’s a lot to ask for… we’ve only just met, and I was only going to use you anyway. You should keep your expectations lower than that.
I’m stressed out just looking at this picture.
