A Misunderstanding

Your profile said you're an unashamed
brainiac. I love the confidence that shows,
like you know you're smart.

You must be really into books and computers
and stuff like that, right?
She was holding a glass of wine

above her plate, her hand supported by
her forearm resting on the table's edge.
No no he said, that was a typo:

I wouldn't say that I'm a brainiac--
I'm a braniac. I really love bran.
His wine as well hovered over his plate,

which was heaped with hot granola,
and millet. She put her glass down,
reaching for the knife to cut her meat.
