So I’d expected to get all serious as I got older, elegant dinner parties and profound political conversations. No. I read about science and world events and I think deep thoughts, but around other people, really, it’s the more ridiculous the better. I spend a lot of time with friends, and sure we do deep stuff like the National Gallery and talk about our feelings and all that, but the best times are the over-the-top dramatic karaoke songs, and the horrible board games, and the water gun and nerf gun fights, and the really, really bad movies. Anything where you hurt the next day from laughing so hard. One time, we were playing Game of Things at Hintonburg Public House and it devolved so severely that the middle-aged ladies at the next table actually ran away to another table at the back.
A coworker told me I was both brilliant and ruthless. I am totally getting a t-shirt made with that.
