Blue Is for Girls, Pink Is for Boys
A conversation with Forrest MacGregor
A bunch of stuff is happening at the Korongo Writers Studio in Randolph this month and next—a free workshop (details to follow), a move to a new location, a rollout of some new programs. But before we get into all that, I would just like to take a minute to discuss fashion. Most people in Randolph know Forrest MacGregor, the author of the text messages shown here, as a jack-of-all-trades, a Mr. Fixit for the New Millennium, and a star of Trivia Night. It is in the last capacity—as a collector of mostly useless information—that Mr. MacGregor sent me the first text (above) late yesterday, after normal business hours. Early this morning, I received his follow-up text, shown below. I share the full exchange not only to impress you with my mastery of the iPhone 6s screenshot but also to remind us all of the perilous fluidity of social norms.
