Oh God, I don’t know…

Friend: Do you still listen to music the way you did when you were a teenager?

Me: Yes. Absolutely. More so.

Friend: How?

Me: I don’t know.


Dudelet: You aren’t an author. You write into a computer.

Me: I might not be an author but I’m a writer.

Dudelet: You aren’t a writer, you use a computer. That’s not writing.

Me: I pour words into blank white spaces, even on a computer.

Dudelet: You’re still not a writer.
