The Big Winner

“I thought we had just decided to not talk to each other ever again but it turns out we were actually in a competition to see who could not email the other longest. And I totally won.”

“Congratulations, I guess. Again, you’re the big winner. Even though you didn’t know you were competing. But, anyway, wasn’t emailing her on the to do list?”

“Yeah, kind of, but it was really far down on the list.”

“Before or after ‘write and publish a hit underground comic book?’”

“Before that but after ‘write and produce a hit animated television series.’”

“Where did ‘get a real job’ fit in?”

“Oh, it totally beat out ‘get a real job.’”

“Real job isn’t on the list is it?”

“No. No it isn’t.”
