Me: Hey this is Megan on my kindle [texting app]. I’m pretty sure my phone was left somewhere in our house. This is an issue when we travel.
Eliz: 🙂 K
Me: …btw, thank God for megabus wifi.
Me: But I don’t WANT to eat dinner now. I need a shower. Now.
Eliz: I forget what an introvert you are. I think you need to go spend some time alone.
Eliz: I was in Atlanta last fall for the elections.
Me: I bet they thought you were ultra-conservative and worried about upsetting you.
Eliz: They did. Thankfully I thought McCain was an idiot, and was rooting for Obama anyway.
Me: Yeah, McCain was so ridiculous. After that election, I didn’t know if I could be a Democrat, but I knew I could never be a Republican.
Eliz: Yeah….McCain. Ugh.
[Two days later]
Eliz: This is my friend, Megan!
Friend: Hi, nice to meet you.
Eliz: I just want you to know, Megan is worse at pop-cultural knowledge than I am. She doesn’t even recognize the artists by their songs.
Friends: I didn’t think it was possible to be less aware than you, Liz.
Me: Hey, Liz, remember when we were discussing the 2012 elections and how awful McCain was?
Me: It wasn’t McCain. It was Romney. McCain was 2008….or something.
Eliz: Oh, yeah, Romney. Ugh.
Me: I’m pretty sure we are bad for one another.
Eliz: Who’s playing?
Friend: Those are the Indianapolis Colts….you’re team.
Me: Oh, it’s Andrew LUCK!
Eliz: Who’s Andrew Luck?
