Dress-Up

Written: 3/8/13 for all of us wearing masks

You put on your best face, I'll put on mine. Let's meet where we know no one and order the food we can't pronounce and the drinks that increase our carbon footprint. Let's talk of issues we don't understand and loudly correct grammar.  Let's  name drop and casually bring up Europe last summer. Let's mention following their music before anyone and their drummer's first name. Let's laugh when things are only surface funny and grimace when something alludes mainstream. Let's hide ourselves and play roles. Roles that dominate our lives and fill our days. Let's.
