A: We’ve been friends what, 20 years, right?
B: A little longer, I think.
B: Why do you ask?
A: Just thinking about how strange it was.
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.
