You have a crush on this cute writer type who works on his laptop at the same local coffee shop that you bring your laptop to, while you write your novel in between writing your blog (not the blog you hope to turn into a novel, but the blog that pays at least some of the bills while you etch your heartbreaks into your supposedly fiction but not really totally fiction-ish novel). You’ve been working out of the same shop for least a couple of weeks but has your crush noticed that you’re kindred spirits yet? No? Then it’s time you pull out the big guns: this beautiful typewriter-esque laptop case. It’s ironic in the same way his glasses and your t-shirt are ironic and if he gets this, he might just get you. And if not, then you can always use it to store your vibrators. Because that would be even more ironic.
