See, that’s where things get tricky. I don’t have the clout or workload to be in need of an actual, paid assistant. That must be nice to brush those trivial things off to someone so willing to accommodate your needs. Did your assistant fold, hang, and iron your laundry too? Let me live vicariously through your glamorous life.
Then it looks like you’re shit outta luck, babe. I almost talked her into it, but no unfortunately that’s where she drew the line.
What’s a more convincing way to sell the position, though? They’d basically be an intern for my person life, not professional. So really, the only experience that I can offer up would be how to get ink stains out of clothes and how to successfully french braid you hair while in a speeding taxi.
Personal assistants are a thing. Basically it’s just socially accepted servitude. They’re good with getting coffee, too. I’ve even had mine do my laundry herself once.
She’s… Is she okay? I left in a rush, I didn’t get to see her. Look, nothing happened and nothing will continue to happen. We were just talking, and it was just for a few minutes. Why the hell were you behind the ficus anyway? Seriously, Chameleon Man?
She’s going to be. You don’t have to explain to me, like I said I really don’t care at this point. Matty’s in Italy, she’s gonna get over this and that’s all I care about. Well I sold all of my blow to some asshole so I was stuck with downers which apparently make me feel like plants are a good napping area - you know what, screw you. Let’s agree to not judge each other for anything that happened last night. Or any night in the future, just to cover our bases.
Matty:Yeah-- and no. I'm with my brother, and his niece. You know, the one that was just born? I just needed to get out. I didn't pack any luggage, and I figured you didn't wanna go through my undergarments, so I asked Sarah.
Alex:Oh, right, yeah. Well, that's good then, yeah? You should get out for a bit. Did Jack go with you? Sure, no problem, I'll get the keys to her.
Alex, relationships aren’t easy. It isn’t going to just ‘be’, even though I’d like it to be. And Jack is a man. He’s a certain kind of man and lets face it, Elena is a certain kind of woman and it’s Jack’s kind of woman. And he was with her once, they.. love each other. And I mean, I can’t.. I can’t stop that. But I love him, Alex. I love Jack. And he’s a person. And he’s normal. I have to live with that. I love him..
Well you’re right about that, they’re both way too fucking cool for school. Which is exactly what I’m saying. You’re not like that, that’s not who you are, Mat. You’re not one of those trendy assholes quoting Bukowski and taking mediocre pictures of naked girls or whatever. I get that you love him and that’s not something you can just turn off, but take it from me - sometimes you gotta start thinking with your head. I just don’t wanna see this destroy you.
I invest energy because I love Jack, and I’m selfish, and I want him to myself.
Yeah, but does he want you that way? ‘Cause it sure as hell doesn’t seem like it. If he did, you wouldn’t have to invest any energy, it would just be. I’m not the poster boy for healthy relationships, but… that doesn’t seem worth it.
