ANOUSH. I’m not interrupting, am I?
PLAID SHIRT. Nah, just pondering my own existence, what’s up?
ANOUSH. Well, I’ve been noticing that I need to work on my networking skills more? And I was hoping to use you as a reference.
PLAID SHIRT. Really?
ANOUSH. Yeah, or something along those lines.
PLAID SHIRT. You’re not with the press are you?
ANOUSH. No-no. But I’ve noticed that we cross paths pretty frequently and I admire your ability to stay focused and uhhhhh are you… ok? You’re breathing kinda heavy.
PLAID SHIRT. I’m… uh…. hhhhhhh
ANOUSH. Are you? It’s not a panic attack, is it?
PLAID SHIRT. Hhhhhhhhhhhh.

ANOUSH. Nope, pretty natural.

ANOUSH. Ok – I’m definitely noticing a pattern, here.
