Nate: I gotta get offa my ass and do something.That's not the case, of course. I was listening. I was listening during the cumulative five minutes of the last month when during which we've actually been in each other's presence. A party was never once brought up. I uh, guess you're all invited, but don't come. Most of you have Rocky to get ready for, and the rest of you, well, the rest of you should just go to Rocky.
Me: Well, it's a gorgeous day outside.
Nate: No, I mean I have to clean. For the party.
Me: What party?
Nate: ...The one we're having tomorrow night.
Me: Why didn't anybody tell me we were having a party tomorrow night?
Nate: We've been planning it forever.
Me: The last part I knew about was going to be on the 3rd, and we vetoed it because it was such short notice.
Nate: Well you just must not be listening.
I've gotta decide whether Ellen and I should even bother being here. Oh, dinner with the coworkers went fine, thanks. Maybe I'll discuss it when I have more time.
