These are the games that I played…
I’m not proud, but I admit that I only pretended to care when you talked about your work, your family, your friends, or your commute. It was all a game to see if you could catch me not really listening, not really caring.
When we sat and played cards for hours on end, it was really only a way to pass the time so that we wouldn’t have to talk, so I wouldn’t have to struggle in an attempt to carry on conversation or at least an interesting monologue. It worked every time.
