i’ve known thompson for most of his life, at least from before he was vocal. i’ve known his little brother from the inside. we haven’t seen each other in a long, long time, and after a mutual double take tonight, this was our conversation:
thompson: “did you retire for a bit?”
me: “like jay-z?”
thompson: “well, i haven’t seen you in a long time”
me: “no, sweetheart. i didn’t retire-what happened was you went to school. that’s why you haven’t seen me.”
thompson’s mom: “you retired”.
