The Sort of Person I Would Like to Meet

A woman sets up a small lamp near her bed. This, she thinks, is adorable. Other adorable things in this woman’s bedroom: her rug, her chair, her bookshelf, and her small stack of postcards. Whenever she has anyone over to her house she says Oh you absolutely must come see what I’ve done with my bedroom. People typically oblige her, following her back to her room and feigning interest for a moment or two. It would be interesting, though, to meet a person who refused to oblige her. That would be the sort of person that I would like to meet, anyway.
