An Unexpected Meeting (PhotoStory)
It's lunchtime on Saturday afternoon. Meg has stopped by the diner for a burger and fries.
"You doing okay over here, dear?" (Waitress)
"I'm doing just fine. I'm just taking my time trying to enjoy every bite. You guys make the best burgers." (Meg)
Over in the corner of the diner are Halle and Brad. Huh? Well turns out Brad took a condo in the same building that Halle lives in. So the post office is not the only place they have met recently.
"I'm really surprised that you asked me out to lunch." (Brad)
"Well, I'm just doing the neighborly thing." (Halle)
"Besides, I've been thinking. I have a really good friend that I would like to introduce you to." (Halle)
"Wait a minute. I don't need help finding a date." (Brad)
"Don't think of it as a date. Just think of it as two new people in town, meeting, and exploring the town." (Halle)
"Hmmm. Let me tell you what I think. I think you like me and this is your way of making me less available, so you won't be tempted. How am I doing so far?" (Brad)
"Can I get you two anything else?" (Waitress)
"No, thank you." (Halle)
"I am perfectly happy with my boyfriend. I don't have any ulterior motives. I was just trying to be helpful." (Halle)
"I see. So where is this boyfriend?" (Brad)
"If you must know, he is out riding with his buddies." (Halle)
"I see." (Brad)
"Would you please stop saying, 'I see'." (Halle)
"Would you rather me tell you how beautiful you are?" (Brad)
"Definitely not. Can you please focus?" (Halle)
Oh goodness. I think Halle is playing with fire. Where the heck is Diego?
