  • Burrd (talking about being called "buddy" at the farmers' market): So far that is my favorite male term of endearment.
  • Ottdurr: Lol right?! I love buddy, bud, dude, and bro. Less with the man.
  • Burrd: Yeah. Same here. "Bud" feels odd though. I'm too sciencey to appreciate it.
  • Ottdurr: I also really love when my dad calls me kiddo for some reason. Sometimes he calls me punkin like he used to and it doesn't bother me like I thought it would.
  • Burrd: Well, I imagine pumpkins are fairly gender-neutral organisms. Vegetables. Whatever.

  • Burrd: Seriously, let me elucidate on this—

  • Burrd: It’s helping me do my homework!
  • Ottdurr: Oh really? And how are you going to justify that, Mr. Anthropology Major?
  • Burrd: I’m reading about post-modernism! Talking about this is making me think about post-modernism!
  • Ottdurr: That is the bullshittiest bullshit comment you’ve ever bullshit at me. Do your homework.
  • Burrd: [giggles hysterically and puts empty Mike’s Hard Lemonade bottle on the windowsill]
  • Ottdurr: You are such a lightweight.

Happy Birthday, sir. My favorite writer, a brilliant theorist, and paragon for how paleontologists and anthropologists can address relevant social questions. Mismeasure of Man and Structure of Evolutionary Theory will always have a prominent place on my bookshelf.
