A Conversation

With my perpetually tough best bud (snatches of our conversation on being “singled”):

She said: I want to be pretty because people can be cruel

So I said: MOVING ON IS NOT A PLAY WHERE YOU PUT YOUR MAKEUP ON BEFORE A PERFORMANCE. MOVING ON IS OBTAINING PEACE OF MIND, OF NOT HAVING TO THINK WHAT PEOPLE THINK.

*****

She said: It’s so weird getting messages from people suddenly wanting to know you when you have BIGGER concerns like: DEADLINES, DEADLINES, LET RESULTS, the Boss’s expectations

And I said: I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND HOW IRRITATING IT IS WHEN PEOPLE YOU AREN’T INTERESTED IN–OR THOSE WHO WEREN’T INTERESTED IN YOU–SUDDENLY HIT ON YOU JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE
EFF-IN’ SINGLE.

So I quoted (COSMO Ed-in-Chief Myrza Sison): It’s not about being choosy. It’s about choosing well.
