"Why the long face?"





"What's that suppose to mean?"

"Just, oh."

"Oh, is not just oh, when you say it."

"Come on! Oh is oh no matter who says it, it's just how one may say it that changes the implication."

"Just what were you implying?"

"I wasn't implying anything."

"You oh'd."


"You don't just oh and not mean something by it."


"What do you mean by that?"

"Nothing, just oh. Like ohhhhhhhhhh."



"See what?"

"Nothing, forget oh."

"How do you expect me to forget what you have been implying?"

"Implying?! I haven't implied anything, yet."

"Yet?! I knew it, I knew it."

"Knew what?"

"You, you....."

"Gage.....if you'd just..."

"Just what?"

"Calm down!"

"I'm calm!"

"Yeah right!"


"Relax, Johnny baby. I just wanted to know what has you so bummed."


"Don't start that again."

"Oh....I's nothing."

"Spill it, Gage."

"It's silly."

"So, for you that's par for the course."

"Can it, Kelly."

"What's the matter? Get dumped again?"


"Ok, ok, sorry. So what's got you so down?"

"Man, it's really stupid."


"Nobody pinched me today."

"Huh? I couldn't hear ya. What'd you say?"

"I said I didn't get pinched today."

"You wanted to get pinched?"

"No..yes... I don't know anymore."

"Well, Johnny, I have to say....what in hell are you talking about?"

"Man! Today's St. Patrick's Day, I didn't wear green today as an experiment to see how many times I'd get pinched."

"I see! No takers, huh?"

"Nope, not a one."

"That's rough. Maybe I can help ya out."

"OUCH! Hey, what did ya do that for?"

"I felt sorry for ya."

"Sorry?! You pinched me!"

"Yeah, I know."


"Do a guy a favor and what do I get, grief. Grief, I tell ya."
