Friend: This is going to make a great sound when it lands in the trash.
Me: Yes. It doesn't matter if we hate it (because I do) because we're just experimenting, right?
Friend: Right. And doing this in the dark was a great idea. I can't even see it. So I'm not full of rage like I was in that shitty drawing class we took.
Friend: So how's it going with that new guy?
Me: I think we broke up.
Me: We didn't email at ALL today. So it's probably over.
Friend: Oh, sorry to hear about that.
Me (swirling gobs of black onto painting): Eh, what can you do.
Friend: Did you get back together with your ex?
Me: Yes, we have a date tonight. We never even TALKED about the breakup, can you believe it?
Friend: It will probably come up in couple's counseling.
