Dear Tow Truck Guy,
You really came through for me, and I appreciate that. I was having a bit of bad luck when we met, so please forgive me for being a bit of a downer. I wanted you to know that I’m normally much more friendly and almost never as grumpy.
For instance, my normal response to small talk is reciprocation. You deserved a willing participant in the conversation you tried to initiate. Instead you got the cold dead stare of a man pushed past his limits by a day filled with deeply personal misfortunes.
Anonymous asked: if you're in a class and playing the dead body in a funeral scene, when is the best time to reveal that you're not really dead and ruin the scene?
The moment there is any silence whatsoever.
I’d also recommend doing it once the audience’s attention is fully invested in another character — you gotta pull focus at just the right moment so everyone pays attention to YOU.
I’ve been a victim of bullying all school year, and I’m sick of it. There’s only so much you can take before you have to take a stand, look your bully in the face, and say “No more”. For me, today is that day.
Dave was right. I do have a weird smile. But Dave is usually right about everything. He was right about how Lost was going to end, and he was right about Stacy cheating on me. Dave is insightful. I need to remember to buy him a birthday card this year.
When he first brought it up, I was incredulous about it. “You’ve got a weird smile”, what a strange thing to notice. And an even stranger thing to mention. What is Dave, the smile police? I mean, I know he’s a cop, but I don’t think there’s a division for that.
Don’t order from that new place.
