Another evening petting a stranger’s dog

“Do you want to go?”
“No.”
“You’ll have fun. You’re going.”

“I’m a teacher. My partner is a principal.”
“I’m a software engineer.”
“Same.”
“Same.”
Everyone connects to a hivemind and simultaneously turn toward me: “What do YOU do?”
“I’m just a mom.”
<- stunned silence ->
“How nice for you.”

“That was fun. I don’t know why you didn’t want to go.”
