It probably would have been a pretty standard story, seeing you, for the first time in a year.
I’d undoubtedly have ignored you for most of the night and then found a way to make sure we were the last two people to leave. We’d have a final catch up; a final drink, maybe, then leave, hoping that that would be enough closure to walk away from you for the final time.
I would have walked away from you, had we not been locked into the pub for six hours because some tosser in the bar down the road decided to hold thirty-five people hostage.
Thirty-five people hostage for fifty K. Can you imagine that? I think I’d at least demand a hundred, just for the effort.

Who would the worst person you can imagine being stuck in quarantine be?

We read constantly about America passing laws that make abortion illegal and it terrifies me, right to my core. But suddenly I feel like if the two closest people to me in the world could vote for that right now, they would.
When I decided that I didn't want to have children, I was nine. I didn't, and still don't have a reason, or excuse for it. I don't have a desperate desire to be an astronaut or anything, I just never wanted to do it and until now I never had anyone question that decision.
What has happened over the last three days has thrown my entire life off course, and an answer that I always gave as if it meant nothing to me, suddenly meant so much to everyone else that I am now on the verge of losing everything that matters to me.
I think, what I'm trying to say is, everything is black and white, until we are struck by a moment of sonder.
TWO OF A KIND

One boy. One girl. No, they do not fall in love. Why? Because not everybody does, some people can just be, I mean, it doesn't have to be… Oh god. Why am I talking to someone when I don't even know if they're there? How bad is it before it's too bad? How can we know when someone’s in trouble? Let’s not talk about it. I can't. Chlamydia. She totally caught Chlamydia from Fatty Finlay. Oh my god I’m trying to get on with this, stop talking about PPI and condoms! But did you hear?

One boy. One girl. No, no, they do not fall in love.
Because not everybody who is, some people can just be, I mean it doesn't have to be ... Oh my god. Why am I speaking to someone if I don't even know if they're here?
How bad is it, before it's too bad? How are we supposed to know when someone is just a bit down, or when they're actually really fucking down and we should do something about it right now because they weren't actually joking when they spoke about ... Let's not talk about it. I can't. Chlamydia. She totally caught Chlamydia from Fatty Finlay. OH MY GOD I'M TRYING TO GET ON WITH THIS STOP TALKING ABOUT PPI AND FUCKING CONDOMS.
But did you hear?
