saturday april 18

today i was leaving my house when i saw that my upstairs neighbour connor was leaving his place at the same time. i raised my hand to him as i left and we both said "hi" and i figured that would be the end of it. as i turned the corner though - walking from the back of my house to the side of it and leaving his line of sight - i heard him add "how are things?" the logical thing for me to do at that point would’ve been to turn around and take a step or two back to answer him. what i did instead was keep holding my arm up behind me as i turned the corner so all he could see was a disembodied hand, and then yelled "pretty good!" from around the side of the house while i continued to walk away.
