A Joke and then Something Serious

I went to dinner tonight with a friend that I haven't seen in a few years. We talked forever and ate delicious Indian food. The waiter was SHAMELESSLY flirting with my friend, which was honestly the most hilarious thing I've ever witnessed. I love good dialogue and excessive hyperbole, and this guy had his patter down. My friend ordered her food without messing up any of the names, which I guess goes down in the wait staff's book as 'pretty remarkable'. He said something like, "Wow, you pronounced everything correctly! I was so surprised; I almost thought I was talking to a native," with this weird little smirk on his face. She said something like, "Well, I have studied foreign languages--French and Spanish~" He actually came out with something as cheesy as, "Well, I've actually been looking for a teacher~" Good god!! HAHAHAHA I wanted to laugh so loud.. Most surreal experience at an Indian restaurant EVER!! People, I tell ya!

What I remember about you. A breezy night in August in your beautiful room. The loves you'd had and lost. Your dreams and never knowing how to set about making them a reality. Your razor-sharp wit and blistering intelligence and the things you opened up in me and the weird ways I sometimes responded to your overwhelming intelligence. How beautiful I thought you were. All the things you knew about the world. How much I'll regret never telling you certain things. How cool you always were. The way you rambled and the way you could simultaneously sound so self-assured. Your maturity. You were always really strong. I imagine that you're a pony running free along a beach.
