Well, that's deflating.

Guy #1: "What are we doing for New Years?"

Guy #2: "Women."

Guy #1: "Yeah. But what about you? BURN!"

Guy #2: "Wow. Good one. The sad part is you're right. You'll get tons of girls. And I'll be stuck, drinking by myself, shooing everyone away while the countdown starts. If I'm lucky, I'll kiss my own hand and wonder when I'll finally be happy. Thanks for that."

That's ALMOST as bad as wandering around Egypt for forty years. Almost.

Guy: (on cell) "I make fun of his Xbox going down and then, BAM! A few days later my projector dies. It's like God hates Jews. You'd think he'd treaten the chosen a wee bit better, no?"

Guy: "What are you writing?"

Girl: "A paper for history."

Guy: "About what?"

Clowntime sounds exciting.

Guy: "Do you think maybe we can put her to bed without all the theatrics tonight? Just like, read a story and then get some sleep?"

Girl: "No. Without the theatrics, bedtime is boring."
