Conversations at Starbuck’s

Jabari: [After handing me my MacBook] Why don’t you change your background?
Me: Hmm… you know, I don’t know. I’ve never thought of that. Like I haven’t even looked to see what other backgrounds I have.
Jabari: Well, you’re a photographer. I would think you’d use like a really cool photo you took. Like of Izzie in her “Oops” pose.
Me: [Pondering] You know, I thought about that, but then I realized if I put up a cute, personal photo like that, it would make me less pretentious, less self-absorbed, and actually kinda likeable.
Jabari: No… not really.
Me: [Laughing] I’m going to blog about that. Hold on.

Me: … Hmm… that’s a good idea. Kinda sounds like Facebook.
Jabari: Want to make some money?
Me: Sure.
Jabari: Ok, but no stabbing me in the back.
Me: Ok, you be Mark Zuckerberg and I’ll be Justin Timberlake.
Jabari: I knew you wanted to be a man. You have man tendencies.

Jabari: It’s taking you a long time to blog that conversation.
Me: That’s because I’m now blogging about the idea you had.
Jabari: Don’t blog about my idea. Non-disclosure!
Me: [Looks around] There’s no NDA around here.
Jabari: [Begins writing on his fist] “N… D… A…”
Me: [Laughing] Ok I’m blogging about that too.
