Me: I write. I haven't written much lately, but I love to write.
N: No, I mean something artistic. What do you do that's artistic?
Me: I write.
N: No, I mean, like, I play the drums. Music. That's artistic.
Me: I understand the concept. I write. Writing IS creative. It IS a form of artistic expression. You've read a book before? For pleasure? Haven't you?
You may be an idiot, but try not to be stupid.
