If your mind is so far into the clouds, and into ideas and your friend stops in the grocery store and starts reading a magazine, sitting down, asking you to read it with him/her. Telling you about Kate plus 8 and all of her bratty ass kids, when you really just don't give a shit about any of that. What would you do?

Would you go along with it, or leave her in the store, sitting alone. Reading the magazine to herself?

I would find an excuse to leave and not hurt her feelings. I couldn't stand talking about stuff like that, though, so I'd have to find some escape.

This actually happened to me once in a wal-mart. I was like.."o_O wu duh fuq?" and stood there, waiting and tapping my foot. She was completely oblivious to me. It's like she did it on purpose, because you can always look that crap up online. She first made a huge deal out of it with her reaction. "OMG LOOK AT THIS!" And my reaction was "OMG SOMETHING HAPPENED WITH THE GOVERNMENT? DID YOU FIND A NEAT COMPUTER GADGET!?" But no...stupid fucking celebrity magazine.

Eventually I told her "Hey, come on, I need to get food" and I started walking off and left her there.

Dunno. I think I'd just go along with it, "for teh lulz". It's quite amusing to go "Oh really?" and "Wow!" when someone tells you something you don't give a crap about. See it as a little social experiment. After a while it would start to get exasperating, and I'd probably zone out and grow less and less receptive to her comments.

Being told I'm a contrarian wouldn't be an insult. I would rather be that, than a sheep.
When I see celebrity magazines plastered all over the place, I feel more like myself. I crawl inside of me.
If I were to even go along with it, I wouldn't feel like myself, I would be lying, and living a lie. Fuck that.

Hey, did you hear about Chelsea Clinton's wedding?!

I'd just go along with it, but thankfully my friends don't really mention stuff like that very often. If I cared enough about her as a person, I'd hint at how shallow and pointless that stuff is. If you have friends that actually care about it, though, and would rather talk about that than, say, the meaning of life or something, they're most likely not worth keeping.

This girl...if I told her that, she'd go off, cocking the worst attitude possible.
Her mbti is ENFP though.

Then I'd not take her seriously.

Then again, I don't take many of my irl friends seriously...

Yeah, I don't think so either. I've told him I take it as a compliment, yet he still likes to use it as an insult.
Oh..you know what would be great? Say thank you, smile, then hug your friend. :D
I used to call this kid in elementary school weird, and he would smile and say thank you and I would get so terribly pissed off because I was ineffectual. :p

hhhaha YESS.
I remember in school when anyone would call me fat I'd say
"you're just jealous because I can eat more donuts than you"

Which was always funny because I HATE HATE HATE junk food it makes me sick.

I'd solve this problem by not having such friends. I tried to create this scene in my head so I could imagine what I would do in such situation but it's hard since I really don't have any friends who would be interested in celebrities.

I'd entertain the friend for a few minutes to be polite and then tell her I wasn't interested in that stuff and excuse myself.
