Aw. Don’t say that! Cleverest person I know, y’know.
…okay. You can mix those, I have done that.
I’ve never thought to do that before.
-hands him a mug- But that’s why you’re the clever one, I suppose.
Better than the opposite I suppose…if it’s going.
Mhmm. -takes out another mug- All I got is tea and a bit of not-so-quality brandy. I don’t care if you don’t want any. You’re having one of the two in a mug and then into your hand. I need someone to not grade papers with me.
It is. I just…thought it was witty.
Oh. I just take everything you say seriously. No, but really. You want something to drink?
…No. Just thought it was funny.
I believe it’s a perfectly legitimate plan. Why? It isn’t?
What? I’ve got something stronger if you like.
I think I’ll sit here and have some tea instead of grading essays. Hope you all like that plan because I have no intention of changing it.
I don’t want to leave… Summers are lovely, and I like having time with Da, but I don’t see anyone except my cats and dogs and Dad.
Well, at least you see other people. I spend most of my time on my lonesome.
