Brain: Are we going to try IMing her again today?
Ego: I don’t know. I think maybe we should back off.
Brain: Back off, schmack off! Why would we do that?
Ego: Well, in the last three days we’ve tried to IM her a handful of times, we’ve sent an e-mail AND a message on Facebook. I think we’ve made our intentions clear.
Ego: So, I’m afraid we might start to look desperate.
Brain: We ARE desperate you moron. Besides, she likes me. She said so.
Ego: Well, that’s true little buddy, what’s not to like. Be that as it may, she might just be really busy right now, or have out of town guests or something. Or . . . she may have just changed her mind. Whatever the case, I don’t want to bug her. You know what the Rolling Stones said, “You can’t always get what you wish you could.”
Brain: That’s not the lyric, you dumbass.
Ego: Whatever! The point is, she knows we’re interested. She knows how to get in touch with us when and if she’s ready. There’s not much we can do but wait and see.
Brain: I guess. But remember what Tom Petty said, “The waiting is the suckiest part.”
Ego: That’s not the lyric, you dumbass.
(They chuckle, tousle each others’ hair and go off in search of more coffee and a bad movie to pass the morning.)
