The Argument (2012)

We were already both in a bad mood due to an earlier argument about something unimportant over coffee. I said ‘I must go now otherwise I’m going to be late for work’; this wasn’t greeted with a great deal of happiness either. It was then the vocals on the song playing from the laptop seemed familiar, I asked ‘who does this song?’ She ignored, and replied with ‘okay go’ in an “I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed” tone.

I left the house briskly and in bad spirit, walking faster than usual to communicate my anger to the uncaring passersby, only to be suddenly interrupted by the vibration of a text:

‘I meant ‘OK Go’ the band, you idiot.’
