picked up the saddest girl at the rose bowl saturday night

taylor swiftas soon as she pinged me she called me to make sure i knew where she was

which was really smart because for some reason the people at the rose bowl are still freaking out that uber is a real thing that thousands of the 80,000 people want to use after a game

and thus its a damn zoo over there with tons of road blocks and one ways only and curvy nonsense

and people on a golf course waiting next to signs with numbers on it

and the smallest gate to get our cars through.

i said i’ll be there in four minutes stay right there.

i had driven all the way to pasadena hopefully to get someone who wanted to go back to westwood

found her, realized it was only gonna be a 15 minute ride, but was ok with it because i could get back there and maybe get a longer ride.

i asked her how her night was and she tried to be cheery but immediately admitted that it wasnt good.

she texted a little and while she did i could hear her sobbing quietly

and then not so quietly.

i turned up the music a little because she was depressing the hell outta me.

i havent heard a teenage girl weep in quite a while.

its way worse than i remember it.

it was very real.

maybe because i hear fake crying on tv and in movies all the time but this wasnt fake.

i wanted to give her advice like,

now you know!

but all i could think of was: feel those feelings

baby

feel them!
