Pretty Physiological Pixie

SSS "I'm going to apologize in advance for my shitty mood. I've been a raging bitch all day. I really don't know why."
PPP "It could have something to do with having a headache for 3 days straight."
SSS "4. And yeah, that might have something to do with it."

That was the beginning of my phone conversation with one of my dearest friends back in St. Louis. Pretty Physiological Pixie gets her name in that she studies anatomy and physiology with a rigor unmatched by any but the most geeky ivy of leagers. Plus she's a deceptively darling little thing, a little pixi ish even. But watch out, she's feisty!
Later in the conversation she updated me on her dating of late.

PPP "I kinda like a guy who's actually somewhat appropriate for once."
SSS "Oh yeah?"
PPP "Yeah well, he's kind of a drunk. I saw him back into the same car twice one night leaving the bar but..."
SSS "You know this is not the way to make me like him right?"
PPP "Yeah, well he's a 29 year old med student and.."

PPP typically dates inappropriate people on purpose in order to avoid committment. Sounds like a good idea when you're reading it. When you're her friend it means you listen to lots of stories about wildly drunken nights where she sleeps with her 10th consecutive drug dealing convicted murderer and how she let him strangle her a little anyway(I might be exaggerating.) Conversation goes on and she describes what happens after they end up back at his place.

PPP "Do you have a condom?"
Drunk med student "No."
PPP "Then I think I'll sleep on the couch."
PPP to SSS "I'm a smart girl."

Right on. That is smart. She then tells me about how their "date" and how she let him drive her car.

SSS "Wait, you let him drive your car? Didn't you just tell me you were 'smart'? ha ha ha. That's not smart!"
PPP laughing, "Yeah well.."

She sure is book smart. Hope Drunk Med Boy turns out ok, otherwise I might have to accidentally back into him with my car.. twice.
