Oh, hello. I didn’t see you there. The door was unlocked? Well, please come in. I hope you haven’t been standing there for long. Would you like something to drink? No, I’m terribly sorry I don’t have wine. Okay, just a beer then? Well, this is awfully embarrassing, but I don’t have that either. Is water alright? Yeah, just go ahead and get it from the faucet. Yeah, I think it’s really important to get the right amount of fluoride, too.
I’m so sorry, you must think I’m so rude. Why don’t you have a seat? Yes, just anywhere on the floor. Chairs? I’ll just run into my bedroom really fast and get some pillows. I hope that’s okay. But we can think of it as a themed evening. Sort of gives off an Arabic vibe, don’t you think? I used to watch a lot of HGTV when I could still afford cable.
No, please don’t feel like you should leave! I have Netflix, we can watch something on the 13-inch screen of my laptop and if we pull it close enough toward us it’s almost like we’re watching a big screen! Do you want to watch anything in particular? I’ve been really into all five seasons of Quantum Leap lately, but we can start from the beginning if you haven’t seen it yet.
No, no, you really don’t have to go! Look, I haven’t even showed you around the place yet. Well, this is my living room. These pillows on the floor are the pillows usually on my bed.
Ummm, yeah my walls are pretty bare. This picture? Oh, this is a picture of my grandparents right after they were married. Or maybe it was right after my parents were married. Who can ever tell the ages of people in black and white photos, right? I pretty much only took it from my mom because it looked old and interesting and as you’ve already pointed out, my wall decor is pretty sparse.
Okay I have a confession. Those weren’t my grandparents. I just never took the stock photo out of the frame.
You can follow me into the kitchen again. I can show you . . . oh, yeah, no it’s okay. Yeah, it is getting pretty late.
We should definitely watch Quantum Leap together some other time. It was great meeting you. I guess our mothers really did know what they were doing when they set us up.
Yeah, let’s get together soon. You have my number right? Okay great, can’t wait to hear from you.
Wait, did I tell you how much fun this was?
Okay, so you’ll call me, right?
Or, I’ll just call you.
Or, you know, whatever.
Get home safely!
Thanks again for the wonderful evening.
