X Factor

At X last night at Bowery Ballroom...

MIKE: Max just swore to me on the phone that he ran into me and you at an X show last year at Irving Plaza and I hated it. Do you remember that?

ME: That's preposterous. I've never seen them live before. I would totally remember it if we had, I love them.

MIKE: I know. He's nuts. What is he talking about?

ME: Maybe it was the Dolls? You hated the Dolls when I dragged you to see them.

MIKE: Well that's just because it wasn't actually the Dolls. I didn't hate it, I just didn't love it.

ME: You hated it. You hated the Two York Dolls.

MIKE: Hee hee! But no, Max says it was X.

ME: All right, whatever Max!

10 minutes later...

ME: So I just ran into Danny and Maria and Danny says the last time we
were at a show together was last year at X at Irving Plaza. And I am
maybe getting some flashes of watching Billy Zoom on that stage.

MIKE: I don't remember anything!

ME: I know!

MIKE: How could we forget an entire show?

ME: I don't know!

RIVER: Y'all are fuckups. (Pointing to me) You're less of a fuckup, but y'all are fuckups.

MIKE: Do you think we'll remember this conversation tomorrow?

ME: Hmm... All signs point to a big no on that one, my friend.
