Ginger: (banging on door) Ruby? Are you home? Come on!
Ruby: Go away. I’m sleeping.
Ginger: You talk really coherently in your sleep.
Ruby: I work at it. Fly taught me.
Ginger: Open the door in your sleep, then. Come on!
Ruby: (opening door) But now you’re going to expect me to get dressed and do something.
Ginger: Darn tootin’. Go get dressed. Let’s go!
Ruby: Why? Where are we going?
Ginger: We are having lunch with my brother and then going to see a movie.
Ruby: Which brother?
Ginger: Remember the brother who was moving to St. Louis?
Ruby: Isn’t he in St. Louis?
Ruby: I thought he was moving to St. Louis on Friday.
Ginger: Why would you think that?
Ruby: Because you said “My brother is moving to St. Louis on Thursday.”
Ginger: When did I say that?
Ginger: Why would you believe me?
Ruby: Why wouldn’t I believe you?
Ginger: Because it wasn’t true.
Ruby: Why would you lie about that?
Ginger: Because Wednesday was Liar’s Day. I missed out on April Fool’s Day, so Wednesday was Liar’s Day. Fooled you!
Ruby: And you didn’t tell me on Thursday because…?
Ginger: Thursday was Play Along Day. You’re supposed to carry over any lie from Liar’s Day into Thursday. Fooled you twice!
Ruby: And today?
Ginger: You don’t like my Games, do you?
Ruby: Was your brother ever going to move to St. Louis?
Ginger: There were plans. They fell through.
Ruby: And this was the best way you could tell me?
Ginger: Well I didn’t want you to be left in the dark forever…and explaining all the boring details just sounded too…dull. I thought this was a fun, new way to pass on the news.
Ruby: Is your brother really meeting us for lunch today?
Ginger: Um…no. Fooled you thrice?
Ruby: If it’s ‘fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me,’ do I get to beat you with a couch cushion at ‘fool me thrice’?
Ginger: That’s a good question. You should ponder that…for a long time…no need for rash actions…
Ruby: I’m feelin’ a bit rash actiony right now. Waking me from a dead sleep does that.
Ginger: Wow! Is that the time? I gotta get going!
Ruby: Wow! It is that time! Bye, now!
Ginger: Bye! Oh – did you want us to pick you up for the movie later?
Ruby: Ginger – LEAVE.
