i asked, why do girls love pulling the heads off barbies?
he laughed and said he's often wondered himself. (this could be a lie).
we bantered suggestions...
'coz the necks are so skinny, because it makes it easier to play hammer throw, twirling the head by the ponytail'.
none of this was monumental.
there was nothing vital or even cosmically comic.
but i treasure this episode as truer to life as it's lived.
we talked so much. and then we didn't.
did we run out? or did we not want to anymore?
