Mating rituals in a Midwestern town

Another observation in Mer's sociological study of Americana: When we were in the second bar (sidenote: Xanies and Shiraz are an interesting combo -- not last night, sillies. ToNIGHT), this chick was bending over the bar, and the dude to whom she was talking promptly stuck his pointer finger in the woman's shorts-clad buttcrack. I'm not sure if this is the way men pick up women in these here parts, but that's what Meridith observed, and that's pretty gross.

[UPDATE: I should clarify that I was the one who in fact saw the Ex-Lax Dude's smooth move -- I caught it and looked away like, "Whoooaaaa," and he got this look like, "Oh, huhuhuh." But when I told Mer about it, she was horrified.]

It is the job of a good person to be honest. To be self-aware. To deliberately explore the fault lines of your character and try desperately to not inflict suffering in this strange, ghost-ridden world of worked and fabricated objects. Sometimes the jobs of writer and good person coincide. But more often they don’t. There are way more writers in the world than there are good people.
