x100: Wicked


As the server poured my wine into a plastic souvenir cup, we chatted.

Me: We're the last people in America seeing Wicked.

(Subtext: Joking about how I'm not cool makes me cool.)

 Him: Noooooooo. Wellllllll. I saw it 10 years ago when it opened.

(Subtext: You are not cool.)

Me: I read the book when it came out.

(Subtext: I was cool before you were cool.)

Him: And you probably saw the movie.

(Subtext: When it first came out in 1939. You're not cool and you're old.)

Me: Yep. Thanks!

(Subtext: Give me my fucking sippy cup of wine, junior.)
