Text conversation with male friend from college while waiting for my movers to meet me at my storage unit:
Him: R u moving alone or is ur brother and dad helping?
Me: Just me and the moving company.
Him: Dang. You r taking charge!
Age/Sex (+ Race?)
I beat the movers back to the house and rushed to position some flattened refrigerator boxes I scored from the appliance delivery crew earlier in the week on the grass, entryway and floors. Then I stood outside to wave the truck down. The plumber working on the unfinished house next door and I shot the breeze for a hot minute before he asked:
“So are you like, the cleaning lady or something?”
Miguel the mover and I had become fast friends on this cold and blustery day, so when they arrived, I told him the plumber story. His reaction:
“Was he a white guy?!”
Full circle, back to Sex:
I supervised an oversized chair being moved through a narrow hallway into a bedroom. “You’ll probably have to take the feet off to get through the door,” I warned. Miguel’s reply:
“Don’t worry, I’ve moved a lot of girls before. We’ll be careful.”
In Which Television, Bob Dylan and Interactivity Collide
The video has 16 channels—with plans for more, Mashable reports. You can toggle between them as the song progresses, and on each one, you’ll find people mouthing the words to the Dylan classic. There’s Steve Levy on SportsCenter singing along. There’s Marc Maron berating some poor podcast guest with Dylan’s lyrics. Drew Carey lip syncs on the set of The Price Is Right. And so on.
FJP: Want more? Another favorite interactive video of ours is Danish denim brand Only Jeans’ shoppableinteractive film Only Because We Can. It’s incredible.

I was lectured by a shoe repairman over two hours ago and I’m still bothered by it.
"Maybe turn them over every now and then to see if the heel is damaged."
Maybe don’t tell me what to do!
