last night was fun but i got tired early and called it quits
the last ride was a 17 year old girl i picked up at usc. her boyfriend goes there.
she was pretty dismissive of the school, him, pretty much everything
except for one thing.
for some reason i always try to bring conversations to happy places
and it didnt seem like ours had gotten there as i drove across town to hollywood via side streets at midnight
so as she texted her friends quietly in the back
i finally asked
is coachella still cool?
she stopped, looked up, and said, omg its the coolest thing ever. im going.
i should have left it at that but when the silence returned i broke it foolishly with
are there any bands youre excited about… like guns n roses..?
she said oh god no. my dad would kill me but, uh no.
