For those of you who don’t live in the Boston area but love mindless chit chat, I provide you with this super-accurate recreation of my pointless conversations with strangers today:
Them: Can you believe how cold it is? With the wind chill, it’s below zero.
Me: It is indeed quite chilly.
Them: Didja heah? The MegaMillions jackpot is $378 million. That’s so big, I wouldn’t mind sharing it with a hundred othah people.
Me: Fuck you.
Of course I’m lying and was a polite weenie the entire time. I even escalated the boringness by saying something about how lottery winners almost always bought their ticket from some office pool in the middle of nowhere. I stink.
