Happy birthday to the man who gives me the evil side-eye when I post on social media, because he “prefers to relate to people personally.” I made him (us) dumplings two ways: Russian, with garlic butter, in honor of his heritage, and Turkish, with yogurt, mint and red chiles, in honor of my taste. Also, they are pork dumplings because when I asked what he wanted for dinner, he said “NOfu tofu.” Fine. Koko the gorilla died today and you’re still going to eat an intelligent, emotional animal. I am too, but I’m going to reflect on it on social media, flag and announce and my guilt, and relate to people impersonally because this is way too dark for personal dialogue.
Happy birthday to the only person in the world who has to deal with my snark, angst and guilt-laden self-absorption (and frequently tofu) every single day.
