may i recap a recent conversation? i find it quite... humorous.
speaking with an old friend, she questions me about my writing...
"so, i hear you are a writer."
"well...i write. i wouldn't necessarily put the "er" at the end."
"what do you write? because bob (name has been changed to
protect the innocent) told me you wrote poetry."
"um, i guess i do sometimes. it's more like i don't like to write full lines,
so i press enter when i feel like it and that kind of puts my writing in
verse which makes people call it poetry sometimes."
"so you're a poet?"
"i'm a non-sentence liker. i guess i'm just impatient when i write.
but yes, you could say i write poems sometimes."
"what do you write?"
"stories about life, faith, family."
"well, no. more like my life, faith, family."
"oh so you're writing an autobiography?"
"no, just stories of my life."
"stories of my life in poem-like form."
"ooohhh. i don't get it."
"neither do i."
"how about i just call you a writer?"
