I met a new person today.
I don't feel as though she really met me, though.
Her mother did all the talking for her: "This is the baby."
I tried to directly engage: "Hi, baby. I'm an adult."
She seemed bored or asleep.
Like she wasn't even interested in what I had to say.
Nice attitude, baby.
Maybe I should have tried to highlight what we had in common, rather than our differences.
Like, I used to be a baby also.
Oh well, I'll know better for the next baby.
* Not completely new, but with only three weeks of wear and tear so far.
