A Conversation

After visiting until quite late with our friends Emily & Clark who abandoned us this summer for Baltimore.*

"I really miss Emily and Clark."

"Yeah, it totally sucks that they don't live here anymore."

"I'm so glad they came by while they're in town and got to meet Julia. I hope they can come back this summer."

"I know. It was a nice visit." Long pause. "So many of our friends have moved away this year, you don't think it has anything to do with us, do you?"

"No."

"Not even a little bit?"

"It's this state, not us."

"Not even the dog diarrhea? Not even the fact that we're the kind of people who could have dog diarrhea in their basement and then when finding it instead of cleaning it up immediately could just turn the lights off and walk away?"

"Who's this 'we'? You. You did that. Not me. You."

"It's still your basement, too."

"Of course that's not the problem. Nobody knows about the dog diarrhea."






*And when in my earlier post about all the friends we've lost to other states in the last year I forgot to mention Emily & Clark it is in no way a reflection on the impact their move had on our state of happiness.

Okay, you're gross.
And I am a bit miffed at you right now. Harrumph.

If it makes you feel any better at all, I'd have probably done the same thing with the dog mess. In fact, I probably HAVE done the same thing in the past. Although I've never had a basement... but you get the point.
