WHEREFORE ART THOU?

Me: (Finishing up a story…) I thought it was pretty romantic.

Him: That is romantic.

(Pause)

Me: Have you ever noticed how a lot of guys are intent on telling women romantic things they’ve done for past girlfriends. It’s like, “Ooh, check me out. I’m such a sneak-attack Romeo.”

Him: Hm… You know, it seems like I’m always just about to do something when you say it’s dumb.

Me: What?

Him: Like, I was about to tell you my romantic story, and instead I’m all, “Huh-huh, yeah. Stupid guys.”

Me: Ha! Rad.

(Pause)

Me: Tell me your story then.

Him: No.

Me: Tell me.

Him: No.
