Inside, Outside, All Around Town
Overheard outside the Newsbar. Black man watching the people parade, shouting to himself.
“Why white women got such flat asses? Man, they soooo flat!”
I tug up my pants so they fit a little tighter and walk in.
Inside: two Gossip Girls, teenagers. Black leather bomber jackets, tiny camisoles, mini- minis, and black leather boots.
Girl#1: Major party foul, Friday night.”
Girl#2: OhmyGod! OhmyGod! Who?”
Girl#1: Annie. She heaved all over Tim’s bushes. Fucking blazed!
Girl#1: Yeah. You know how into those bushes Tim’s Mom is. She’s gonna delete him.
Girl#1: So whaddya get on your SAT’s?
I’m grinning like the Village Idiot. Party foul. How great is that? And ‘gonna delete him.” Love that, too.
Heading home now to disassemble the rolling coat racks. My friend bought them for the book party I threw for her. It was fun, wandering through a crowd of 60 or so total strangers, listening to their running commentary about the loft.
IE: What is she some kind of professional reader? I’ve never seen so many books in my life!
