Introductions

“Hey, how are you doing, I’m fine. What’s up?”

THIS is a greeting you save for people you know but don’t want to let in, beyond a point; people you’re just getting to know; people who aren’t that interesting to you; people who are friends but not the kind of friends you wouldn’t spend a full day with; people you have to be civil to for whatever social politics you indulge in; and people who you work with or for. For anyone else who’s close and intimate and knows you better than most people and would probably give you a kidney or two if you asked for it, drop the formalities and jump directly into conversation.

“Bitch, I have news. Let’s talk.”

“You look like you have something to tell me. Spill.”

“I kissed a girl. I liked it.”

 

THESE are acceptable openers.

What I Want.

I indulge in people who are free-spirited, absolutely random and like to remain absolutely impossible to reach or stay in touch with. It’s frustrating but exactly what I want. It’s difficult to explain. 

It’s simply the thought of not having something until its orbit clashes with yours and then it’s yours for that brief period of time. That brief period of time will be fun, it will be exciting, it’ll be the highlight of your week. Then that time’s over and you’re left following life’s daily routine, wondering fondly when this time will happen again. It’s a little sad but beautiful. I’d be lost without these elements of unpredictability in my life.
