Ginger: Yes, Ruby?
Ruby: You’re scaring me.
Ginger: What am I doing?
Ruby: You’re…staring…in a threatening manner.
Ginger: I’m not staring at you.
Ruby: No, but passersby are avoiding their eyes as they pass by. Care to share the source of this feeling?
Ruby: The city or the character from The Suite Life of Zach & Cody?
Ginger: You know, having a DVR has really altered your life.
Ruby: We’re focusing on you now.
Ginger: And yet, I want to come back to you…
Ginger: Oh yeah. London.
Ruby: So…? The entire city is putting you into a sour mood from the other side of the Atlantic Ocean?
Ginger: No. The fact that I can’t go there is putting me into a sour mood.
Ruby: Were you banned from another country? Ginger, we’ve talked about this…
Ginger: No, I’m not banned, I just can’t go there.
Ruby: Passport problems?
Ruby: Flight costs too much?
Ginger: I can afford one way easily, it’s that return trip that keeps tripping me up.
Ginger: And I asked my manager if I could work in the London office for a few days at the end of my vacation, would the company pay for my return trip. And do you know what he said?
Ruby: “We have a London office?”
Ginger: No. He said he couldn’t let me do that because he’s pretty sure they wouldn’t let me leave.
Ginger: Yeah. Apparently, he doesn’t want to let the London office know I exist, because they’ll just try to keep me.
Ruby: Would you stay there permanently if the offer arose?
Ginger: No. Don’t be ridiculous. Do you know how long the flight is from London to Sydney? It’s a full day on an airplane!
Ruby: Did you tell him you wouldn’t stay if they tried to keep you?
Ginger: No, I told him they wouldn’t want to keep me because I’m too persnickety about how I like things done.
Ruby: You are a bit OCD…
Ginger: He seemed to think it wasn’t going to be that big a deterrent.
Ruby: Well, you could always look on the bright side…
Ginger: Buying a one-way ticket would almost guarantee a job in the London office until I can afford a one-way ticket back here?
Ruby: Other bright side.
Ginger: The London office has need of persnickety people?
Ruby: Other bright side.
Ginger: Your neighbors think your Halloween decorations are up, due to the amount of people scurrying past in fear?
Ruby: Okay, I’m going to have to tell you the Other Bright Side, aren’t I?
Ginger: What in the entire history of our relationship led you to think I could find it on my own?
Ruby: Your boss thinks you’re too important to lose.
Ruby: See? Makes you feel proud of the work you do, doesn’t it?
Ginger: Not really.
Ruby: Why not?
Ginger: Because I want to go to London!
Ruby: I know…
