Domestication

I've never felt domestic and boring until last night when Jer's good friend Jason from high school and this girl named Ariel who he met online came over for dinner.
I was in the kitchen cutting potatoes and I turned on the grill when they came in. The Mets game was on the HDTV, which we also forced them to watch. I offered them beer. But it was just kinda weird because Jason is kind of a vagrant (he's going to become a squatter and is looking forward to it) and Ariel, although really nice, kind of looked like she never left her lab at MIT where she studies cognative something or other.
It was the first time that I looked at my apartment and my belongings and thought to myself, why. And we made them veggie burgers and our own special roasted sweet potatoes and forced them to watch the new episode of 30 Rock, which Jer and I spent the whole 30 minutes laughing our asses off but Ariel and Jason just sat there like stones. They made me feel so normal and settled for the first time ever and it left an unpleasant taste in my mouth. But maybe they're the crazy ones and we're doing okay. Who knows.
