"Long Beach is the new Brooklyn. I'm convinced."
"does that make me a hipster?"
"You are beyond a hipster. You are a vanguard."
- my old bartender told me today. I miss my bartender/ therapist/ friend.
I don't miss many, but I miss that friendship.
My memory is awful. Ive only realized this recently. My friend Greg told me the other day about remembering the exact date a certain cartoon show premiered (20 odd years ago), and everything else he had done that day. Stevens memory is impeccable.
I've been trying to remember things that my bartender and I would talk about. Everything I suppose. Nothing in particular comes to mind, and yet I know those conversations shaped me.
Funny how that can happen.
