When someone says something and you don’t really hear what they said, because you’re deaf as shit…
Or when someone makes a joke you don’t get…
…And then you pretend you totally heard it or totally got it, and you laugh along, throwing your head back with appreciation, and say, “Right?”
When that happens, there’s a window to course-correct and say, “Oh wait, I thought I heard you but I didn’t.”
Or, “I just pretended I got what you said but I actually have no clue, because I’ve never read Balzac.”
If you miss that window, you’re so screwed.
Do you ever miss that window, or do you take it?
Or do you never pretend you heard or got something you didn’t, because you’re naturally honest, in which case, what are you doing here?
