Trying to focus on Thoreau‘s cabin, I
can’t help but hear a man talk about
how he likes slender women,
and the woman he’s committed to is
slender though he considers asking an
“exotic” woman out.
I glance at him then look back to my
magazine. Funny how men who
are nowhere near catches hold
such high standards for women.
He goes on
Another man sensing he’s talking
too much says, “We’re guys, no
matter what age.”
I want to yell, “Arrested development!”
but then I’d have to join the conversation.
