(This week I went to a writing workshop with Ian McMillan, which you can read about on the Guernsey Literary Festival blog – the general texture of the below thing came from that).
Maybe they had known someone, maybe that was it. That was a thing, wasn’t it? Knowing someone? That was a valid thing, had to have been.
Someone wanted this brand new verb, for it to be useful. They needed, it was – oh anything anything anything anything – whatever, it was needed, then they could let people know. About… well, nearly there, on the cusp, then quashed.
“Must have been possible…” once, “…to know someone, must be…” wandering from the room, “…that’s a thing right…” pulling the door to. Right. Right?
