Friend: We should go see a movie.
Me: Is there anything good playing? I haven't paid much attention lately. The last movie I saw was Inglorious Basterds.
Friend: That movie was awesome.
Me: Yeah, I liked it. I didn't call you when I went because it was a spur of the moment thing, so I went by myself.
Friend: I did the same thing.
Friend's Lab Mate: Last time I went to a movie by myself, some middle eastern guy kept trying to pick up on me.
Friend: Having a middle eastern man try to pick up on me would be a significant upswing in my love life. It would be a self esteem booster because I'd at least feel validated in some perverse sort of way.
