today my first thought was “first thing’s first, I’m the realest”, and I’m optimistic that it’s an omen.
I have a story!
I’m a cashier at a grocery store, and the other day a customer wanted to buy some cigarettes. I wasn’t even going to bother carding him, but he presented his passport. I was like “nah, man, it’s ok” as I noticed it was Turkish. I say “that’s really cool though”, but it was kinda vague what I meant.
He smiled and then I tell him “Merhaba :D” (Turkish for “Hello”), which I learned off of HelloTalk, and he starts smiling all big and says stuff in Turkish. I explain that “merhaba” is literally the only thing I know in Turkish, and he laughs. He excitedly shouts “That’s the most important thing to know!!” and quickly tries to teach me “how are you”, but I had no idea what he was saying.
It was the ~express lane~ (20 items or less), so we were kind of holding up the line a bit, oops. He thanks me, we both laugh, and then he’s on his way.
Literally all you have to do to make friends is learn hello. [Also see: me impressing the Italian guy with “gratzi” (thank you)]
She wants my USD
Moral of the story, don’t eat a buncha beans before you go to work.
Gettin’ turnt on this Friday night. Thank you, Based La Fouine.
Literately though, I was studying until this song came on. Too swag to study, ja feel?

im baking a potato, and I thought “pomme de terre? more like pomme de not done yet”.
If you want to shit in privacy, go to an unpopular building’s highest floor’s bathroom.
No one goes to the highest floor unless they have to. No one but you.
I kinda have Sokka hair now, it’s long enough to tie up in a pony tail like he does at least.
