3RM came over on Friday. Haven’t seen him since homeo sapiens decided to stand erect and transgress from mass banana eating to other foodstuffs.
He has a girlfriend now; 3RM is all grown up.
Months have gone by, and we decided to kick it old school, watch stupid shit on TV and catch up. Nothing has changed. If I didn’t see 3RM for 500 years, it would still be the same:
3RM: Wow there are a few new things about the place.
Peas: Yeah, and look, my favourite.
3RM: That’s an entire suitcase full of Friends!. Oh dear dude. Oh dear.
Peas: I didn’t get a cat. Remember that.
Peas: Nice phone.
3RM: I’m still looking for a ringtone. It’s never an easy decision.
I’m thinking The Prodigy. It’s always about…what’s at the beginning.
Say…have you always owned that? [points to my antique retro chair]
Peas: No, do you like it do you like it?
3RM: Dude it’s a fucken school chair.
Peas: Exactly. R150 what a steal.
3RM: Except yours isn’t that chipboard, it’s like what you get on kitchen counters from the 70s…
Peas: Formica. Yes, that makes it even more valuable.
3RM: Check this out dude, you have to see this.
Peas: Why are we watching Kyknet? I don’t understand anything.
3RM: No you godda see this dude: ’N Boer Soek ‘n Vrou. It’s like The Bachelor, but for farmers.
Peas: Shut. Up.
3RM: Dude, serial – check he got 300 letters from applicants and he’s wearing two tone.
Peas: This is gold. This is too good to be true.
3RM: And look, no chinos. Beige shorts.
Good to know some things, in a world of constant flux and idiot drivers, that some things really don’t ever change.
