Modern Love

Phone Call (one side)

"Yes. Exactly. It was a fake number. But! As it turns out, the chick who's number it really was is even hotter."

"Cuz she said hot things ... It was obvious, dude."

"Look, you're totally missing the point."

"What? What do you mean?"

"Ha ... Well, I have always kinda wanted to be a princess."

"Because, man ... no one ever tries to sweep guys off their feet. It's girls that get all the attention and love. It's fucked up."

"Haha ... Yup."

"Yyyyy--eeaah."

"Uhhhhh ... yyyyeah ... yeah ... um, dude, look, I've gotta get going. I'm pulling up to my apartment.  Umm ... yeah ... yup ... I'll see you later."

In His Head

I hate sitting by myself at the bar. Why am I even doing this? She's probably going to be gross. Ug... burritos. That's how I got her to meet me? Jesus ... I have to piss. No ... I can't meet her on the way out of the bathroom. My hands will be wet. Shit ... do I shake her hand? Do I hug her? Stupid question. Hug her. No ... shake her hand. God, we've sent like ... ten messages to each other. She's late. Noooo ... I'm early. Damn it. Shut up brain.

 

IRL (In Real Life)

"Um ... hi ... are you Andy?"

"Yeah. Dana?"

"Yes! ... Sorry my hands are wet. I got here a half hour early and already had a few beers. Want to go get some burritos?"

"Yes."

"Great."

"Um ... I just wanted to say ... uuhh ... I think I'm in love with you."

"That's cool. I think I'm in love with you too."
