I went to an opening at a well-respected and established
downtown and quickly realized that
the artist exhibiting
was my neighbor-
like, the other side of by bedroom wall
(I knew he was a photographer and sometimes
we end up with his mail in my box)
Walking through the show
no matter how hard I tried to
look at the photos and enjoy them for what they
all I could think about was what a jerk that guy is
and how we have been listening to him scream and yell at
forever now, even
during the time she was pregnant.
That yelling has let up since it was born but now the baby cries a lot.
Big fancy art show or not,
I have a lot of evidence that points directly towards
that guy being a real dick.
fOLLOWUP: one month later I saw the guy at the next show at the space and we talked for a long time- turns out that it was a total fluke that he even had work in the space- apparently he really just got lucky... And he's really nice... So is his baby momma... So why all the yelling?
