"What do you do?"

"I'm a technical writer."

"Do you write other stuff?"

"A bit, sometimes."


"No Poetry." I laugh.


"Yeah, Some."

"Do you read philosophy too?"

"A bit."

"Oh, good! Materalist or Idealist?"


"Who do you read?"

"I'm a bit of an unreformed Deluzian."

"Deleuze wasn't a materialist."

"Yeah, but he wanted to be. Really bad."

"There's that. I've been reading Hegel recently."

"Oh, really."
