we’re starting soon
are you coming in?
do you remember we said we’d meet at nine?
The human race is a monotonous affair
are you on your way?
Most people spend the greatest part of their time working in order to live
so you’re not coming in
and what little freedom remains so fills them with fear that they seek out any and every means to be rid of it
but I would have appreciated a heads up
that’s fear talking
do you know what i love about peasants
how simple they are
what do you mean
they’re so simple
like instead of how normal people have a LOT of things
they only have a FEW things
do you mean poor
it’s not the same
so it’s not poor
my dear friend
today i experienced the sheer glory of hearing Charlotte tell her brother she did not particularly care for The Vicar of Wakefield
okay but so like
what else is going on
i dont understand the question
what’s going on in your life besides Charlotte
what is the destiny of man, but to fill up the measure of his sufferings
and to drink his allotted cup of bitterness
could we talk about something else that is not Charlotte
but then that would not be Charlotte
no i know
that’s the point
but what would poor Charlotte do
