"I’d like to be a writer."
"What do you write?"
"I mainly just write in my journal. I like to take snippets of conversation that I pick up on the street from different people, and piece them together into one conversation. You never do that?”
"I don’t think so. How do you mean?"
"I don’t know… whenever I hear people talking passionately on the phone, it tends to be about the same things— relationships, money, things that they value. So it’s easy to take pieces of each conversation and put them into a single narrative. It’s just like when you watch sitcoms. You tend to notice the same scenes acted out over and over, just with different actors."
