Got to run.
(I sound like my mother)
but it's interesting.
There are people who can annoy the hell out of me -- for various well-justified reasons, actually,
But then they surprise me.
There's a woman I know fairly well -- mother of a kid my kids know. I sort of like her, and I sort of don't.
In certain ways I think she's a little bit snobby, and maybe a little bit overimpressed with status and wealth.
And I'm probably jealous -- she's quite good-looking and artistic and her kid is quite athletic.
But then every once in a while she'll surprise me, with a sympathetic note that was quite perceptive when a bad thing happened to me. Or something like that.
She's often more perceptive than I imagine she can be.
Or she'll be quite open about some awful thing that's happened to her, in a way that a completely status-conscious person wouldn't quite be --
I think she makes me nervous because she's quite a bit cooler than I am --
but actually, it may only be that I perceive her that way.
Sort of like a friend I had in junior high.
Anyway. I'm going nowhere with this, but it interests me.
Okay. I have to go home now.
