Back on the phones at work and I’ve stopped playing Final Fantasy.
The little guy spoke to me twice, once at the start of our shift and again during lunch. Spoke a little about vidya but we didn’t have anything in common. He is playing the Crash Bandicoot remake and several mobile games, I actually downloaded one, it’s like storage hunters, didn’t get to talk about the show. Mentioned not liking music, not travelling and having no plans. I made some decent jokes, said his trip to Croatia sounded like a Hostel type situation, he said be wasn’t staying at one, I said I meant the film, he smiled. He asked my age, I was ashamed to say, he l looked younger, I joked it was because I dressed like a child (pre-prepared joke), he said it was my face. Happy with that.
He noted he didn’t see me at the bar for monthly free drinks with work colleagues, I guess I should be glad he didn’t assume I’m Muslim.
The only major screw up was using the word “basically”, like a paki.
I don’t understand how it’s so easy for him to talk to me and others, the trans person sat near me for 5 minutes but I still couldn’t engage. I suppose it helps that he’s an interesting person.
Forgot to renew my season ticket so I bought a single when I arrived at the station. Might gamble and buy a month long pass tomorrow.
Still eating badly.
