So, the other day I was waiting for Tom to pick me up from outside a restaurant door.
He had a rain jacket on.
I had left my umbrella in the van, so he said:
"Stay here"- meaning at the front door to the restaurant, "I'll get the van and pick you up. Saves you from getting wet."
Made sense to me. I could stay dry.
Two Teenage girls stood a few feet to my right while I waited on the Mister- right?
Rhonda: So, like he says prob, right, eh? (she texts Mary Ellen)
Rachelle: Right? (Texting Brad)
Rhonda: And I go like right...
Rachelle: True, right...
Rhonda: But then, he...
Rhonda: He like goes like I'm not sure- right.
Rachelle: What the...
Rhonda: I know- right?
Rhonda: 'Cause he knows it- right?
Rachelle: Psssbtts (mouth noise) Yah, like too true- right...
Rhonda: Right. That's what I said.
Rachelle: Fer sure, I guess.
Rhonda: Cause, like I know that he did- right?
Rachelle: rolls eyes and texts Yah.
Rhonda: So, I say- What the fuck Brad (texting Shondra)- right?
Rachelle: Right...and why wouldn't you- right? (posting pic to Instagram)
Rhonda: I know.
Rachelle: Right? (pause) So...
Rachelle: If he didn't (pause while texting) like, then maybe Brad is like, you know right.
Rhonda: Right? (texts Julianna about shoe shopping)
Rachelle: I mean, like, he could have- right?
Rhonda: (stops texting and thinks- if that's humanly possible) Like Brad is so like cool- right?
Rachelle: Ya, right...
Rhonda: So, I should think about it right?
Attention diverted...a new text arrives
Rachelle: Oh look, Mike just texted..
Rhonda: Mike Mike? Right?
Rachelle: Ya, well who else right...
