This is a fairly long short story for a single class. But it deals with something relevant, yet foreign, and fantastic, yet everyday. Found it after I had been thinking about sarcasm, ”the joke is on you” and the ”been that done that”-attitude that human beings sometimes have… And the whole question of being fake or having a mask to hide behind, either in terms of your gender or where you come from socially. Hope you understand.
Anyway, read this weird story of two guys going out to flirt with girls, where the tables get really turned.
