Here’s to men who have bachelor parties and make pins to hand out to each other at the party, and also hand to strangers at the bar. Pins with the groom’s face on them, mustached, cross-eyed. Here’s to the pin ripping my shirt when i forgot about it and took off my shirt and the pin ripped it a little.
It is not a bad rip. And also here’s to baby showers where couples go together, even though baby showers are very obviously an event designed for women exclusively, i think. Except once I did feel left out, i think it was jabari’s shower couples shower years ago, and rob and tim went and i remember thinking: fuck this. it was a party and i was sitting somewhere else.
Los angeles tomorrow, a car and everything. Pomona College my old college, my dear fair old school on Wednesday Crookshank Hall if you’re around.
