You: you’re heeeerrrreeee

Stranger: Yup

You: nice

You: good choice

You: you’re important

Stranger: Why.

Stranger: N

You: even though there are 19,742 strangers online, i think this is the best situation for you

Stranger: Oh…okay

You: yeah,

You: i’m definitely sure

Stranger: So f or m

You: i love science

You: like

Stranger: Me too

You: i think that science informs poetry

You: and i consider this poetry

You: and improvisational comedy

Stranger: Really u do, interesting

You: but really: we both know how existential this is

You: like if we really break it down, there’s elements of it that exist and are totally uninspected

You: and those elements are really important

You: and they aren’t existential at all

You: so i guess we can’t really say it’s existential

You: which is OK

Stranger: Okay u seem like a smart person

You: i updated itunes today

Stranger: Updated itunes, u work for itunes

You: naa

You: i installed the update

You: you know, on my pc

Stranger: Oh stupid me

Stranger: Ya i know

You: i never do anything blind folded

Stranger: Blind folded, well so do i

You: huh?

You: i can’t do any impressions

You: i do two

You: i do one of a guy who has never had a drink bought for him before

You: and i do a second one

You: of a guy who’s face is melting

Stranger: Face is melting

You: yeah

Stranger: Oh lovely

You: yeah

You: you have too many capital letters

You: it’s probably wearing down the soft tissue in your knuckles

Stranger: What?

You: i say: less shifting, more living

You: yeah

You: yeah

You: you’re gonna have trouble hitting those bar chords

You: baby

Stranger: That’s so weird

You: if i had to rate this conversation, it would be less than 5

You’re now chatting with a random stranger. Say hello!

Stranger: asl

You: if i didn’t have to breath ever again, idk if i’d rather live on the moon or underwater

You: you know, the moon, there’s jumping

You: underwater, there’s cool looking fish

You: you know?

Stranger: i know

Stranger: what going on

Stranger: asl

Stranger: m/f

You: not much, cool pal

Stranger: ya

You: i’ve done some corn dog work in my life

You: let’s be real

You: i was a dishwasher

You: i didn’t have any other options

Stranger: why

You: but my arms got really sick

You: with “allergic reaction”

You: ?

Stranger: what asl

You: idk

You: i guess, i just need an audience

You: it’s like— with the internet in place—

You: i can’t just be satisfied with the people closest to me

You: i need a large audience

Stranger: for what type audience

Stranger: u m/f

You: it’s like a weird game where i change some of my thoughts from invisible to visible

You: and what i really want is to change all of them to visible

Stranger: so sweat

Stranger: ok enjoy yourself

You: but i’m scared

You: if i change all my thoughts to visible—will i have any thoughts left

You: ?

Stranger: but u hv confidence

You: i realized—with the help of substance—that perspective is fragile

You: and one can make themselves confident

You: by thinking that they are

Stranger: yes

You: but at the same time, i have no idea where my thoughts come from

Stranger: if he tried in positively

Stranger: i know u do

You: so it’s like i had no control over the fact that i was not confident

You: and then i have no control over the fact that i willed myself to become confident

You: but all in all, i’m happier now

You: so as a spectator of my own mind, i feel positive about this correction

Stranger: it means first u have knowlede what u want to doing

Stranger: in npositivesense

Stranger: egnore negative points

You: i’m totally a man

Stranger: means
