“No, my cousin is in town,” counts as a rejection, right? I think it does but you know me – I have no clue when it comes to what people actually mean. The context is that I asked this near-future honors grad of UW-Whitewater if she wanted to go somewhere tonight. Her answer was “No, my cousin is in town.” As I said, I think that’s a rejection. At any rate, I won’t say anything about it. She knows where to find me.
