A guy on OKCupid emailed me and said he was surprised to find a “culturally aware, well-read woman” from my hometown.
At first I wasn’t sure what to do with that. Uh…thanks for the…”compliment…?”
I decided it reeked of pretension and ignored him. But the subsequent swearing in my head had a Jersey accent.
(One of the reasons I started hating New Lad was because he talked shit on my hometown. ‘Ey. Fuck you. You’re a Mets fan, man, go fuck yourself.)
