is 'stupidest' a word?

so there's this guy in my "office" who uses the word "late" as a signoff for his telephone conversations.


as if the whole two syllable word is just too hard to say. (the two syllable word that's really short for an excruciatingly long three-word sentence.)

i don't know why it bothers me so much.

he says it to his girlfriend.

during the course of the day yesterday i vowed to never date a guy that says "late" when he's done talking on the phone. especially to me.

then i got home yesterday and was listening to my new phone messages. i came across a week-old message from my current flesh blanket whom we'll call "southie."

"hey this is [southie], just calling to see what you're up to... late"

late? he actually said late. fuck.

now let me start rationalizing by saying:

1. we're not really dating per se. just fucking.
2. the sex is fucking awesome.
3. the reason we're fucking is not because of his intelligence.
4. did i say the sex was awesome?

so, i suppose i take the vow back. or perhaps i'll just amend the vow by saying i'll never seriously date anyone who ends phone conversations with the word late.

ok? ok.
