Robert and Donald
Donald: So, what are we doing for Valentine’s Day?
Robert: Oh I don’t know.
Donald: I guess we should do something.
Robert: We don’t have to do anything.
Donald: We don’t?
Robert: Well, not together at least.
Donald: What are you suggesting?
Robert: I was thinking about going out with a friend.
Donald: A friend friend? Or …
Robert: Not … necessarily.
Donald: You mean you have a new lover?
Robert: I … might.
Robert: You’re not upset, are you?
Donald: Not … well, not too upset. You could have told me though.
Robert: So what, you could fire me?
Donald: I’d never do that!
Robert: Pfft. Sure.
Donald: I wouldn’t! And anyway, I have a new boyfriend. Take that!
Robert: You do?
Donald: Yes. We’ve been seeing each other for weeks.
Robert: Then why are you still living on my couch?
Donald: Because I didn’t want to upset you!
Donald: What are you laughing about?
Robert: Just … nothing.
Donald: Huh. So you want to double date on Wednesday?
Robert: May as well. But you won’t be coming back to my place after.
Donald: Why not?
Robert: Don’t you think that would be a bit awkward?
Donald: Well I can’t go back to his place. He lives with his mother.
Robert: (slumps in his seat) There goes Valentine’s Day.
