A: We’ve been friends what, 20 years, right?

B: A little longer, I think.

A: Huh.

B: Why do you ask?

A: Just thinking about how strange it was.

B: What?

A: Well, we’ve been friends for a long time, and it’s been awhile since we’ve seen each other…

B: Too long.

A: Exactly.  Yet there are some things it’s inappropriate for us to talk about.

B: Like what?

A: Well, for instance, do you remember when you cheated on your fiancé with my – at the time – future wife?

B: Hold on…

A: I just think it’s strange that we can’t talk about that.

B: You two weren’t even dating yet.

A: Oh no.  Of course.  I didn’t mean to suggest you had wronged me in some way. By the way, have you ever told her?

B: Is that a threat?

A: Of course not.  I merely think it’s odd that such old friends can’t talk about some things.

B: I was wrong earlier.  I don’t think it’s been long enough since our last meeting.

A: Perhaps you are right.  Ah look, here’s your better half now.

C: Are my ears burning?  Were you two talking about me?

A: Indeed we were.

C: And what were you saying?

A: I’m afraid I must go and visit with others who are in attendance.  I’ll have to let your devoted husband tell you how we sang your praises.
