i’m leaving this here for posterity
people asked me if this actually happened. it sure did!
also: i was asking her to hang out in a non-romantic / platonic way, what with there being no one to really hang out with around here. though you know what? i am definitely not trying to deal with someone’s gun-toting newly-released-from-prison boyfriend. as cool as this girl is, that’s just a bridge too far for me
alas!! i really like isabella. we get along well and are in some sense friends. i guess for now our friendship will exist only within the walls of my favorite grocery store lol
