It’s days like this I really miss the Brown Door. Do you have a lot of conversations? I do, and most of them suck. Even with friends, most conversation in your 20’s is pointless stuff-referencing, picture-posing-for and here’s-my-card life updates. Look at those Facebook pictures folks. It’s why we’re drinking and turning the music up. Not much interesting is being said.
It’s actually worse for nerds. People who read a lot and privately think they’re clever make the shittiest small talk. Because no one’s as smart as they think they need to be. Better to make jokes about Gawker than to reveal a wrong opinion.
It’s a rare find, more than one person with whom you have real fun, just talking.
