Conversations with Nadya
Nadi: Oh god, why don’t you ever write about when you actually succeed?
Me: What’s the fun there? Met a girl, we hooked up, blah, blah, blah. There’s no story there. Plus, you know I don’t kiss and tell.
Nadi: At least put something there. It’s depressing otherwise.
Me: There’s a fine line between hopeless romantic womanizer and sleezeball player.
Nadi: But it always sounds like, “Oh poor sad sack Logan screwed up with another girl.”
Me: Maybe I’ll put up a 10-to-1 ratio of…wait…sad sack?
Nadi: A ratio might be…
Me: Sad sack?!
Nadi: Look, all I’m saying is…
Me: Whaddya mean, sad sack?! Do people feel sorry…
Nadi: FOCUS, LOGAN!
May be focusing too much at times. How’s your dating life going?
Me, I’m out and about. But I’m also waiting.
After some modicum of attraction, there is only ever two things any relationship needs, and neither one of these things is love.
The two things are loyalty and fun. Everything good comes from these two.
Everything bad comes from when one or both are missing.
If you find someone with these three things, you’re doing well.
But more on that later. Right now, gotta catch a plane.
Location: in Queens, packing
Mood: full & sick
Music: When we were close I’ll remember these things the most
