Fitzcarraldo, drinking toast after toast: "To your dogs' cook. To Verdi. To Rossini. To Caruso."
Other guy, raising his glass: "To Fitzcarraldo, Conquistador of the Useless. Cheers!"
Fitzcarraldo: "As true as I am standing here, one day I shall bring grand opera to Iquitos. I will outnumber you. I will outbillion you. I am the spectacle in the forest. I am the inventor of rubber. I will outrubber you. Sir, the reality of your world is nothing more than a rotten caricature of great opera."
white people: mike brown robbed that store!
Lawyer: no he didn’t
Store owners: nope
Eye witnesses: nah
white people: MIKE BROWN ROBBED THAT STORE
people who are paying attention: hey hey did you know that robbing a store is not actually grounds for an extrajudicial execution anyway
I was in love with this boy once so I started to beat him up everyday but people thought we were rough housing bc boys can’t like each other and one day I was like “dude I like you a lot but I can’t cope with my feelings so I beat you up im sorry” and he was like “dude that’s really chill we can hold hands if you want??? Btw you have really good punches.” And that’s the story of how I had my first boyfriend
that was wild from start to finish
- Romantic sexual: Hot, single, & ready to mingle
- Aromantic sexual: Cool, fresh, & ready to mesh
- Romantic asexual: Warm, subtle, & ready to cuddle
- Aromantic asexual: Already pretty comfortable
So without intending to, I somehow ended up at DragonCon. (It’s pretty hard to avoid if you go downtown.) Is anyone else I know here?
