I’m at work and I just realized, that I think I may be an idiot. Well I knew that already but about this specifically. We were given salami and cheese by like our building or something and I was eating the cheese and I used a nonsense word to describe it… Sharp. I realized likely depth and bright and whatever other things I was not sure on probably exist in a similar world as the word sharp.

I was taken aback. “But you know what it is?”

“Oh, God, yes,” she said, and laughed. “And you would never guess it. Let’s just leave it at that.” I asked if she could tell me why she couldn’t tell me. “Because they don’t want anyone to know that it’s glitter.”
