Ruby: What are you doing?
Ginger: Do you realize how many of our conversations start that way?
Ruby: Do you realize how many of them wouldn’t have to if you did normal things at normal hours of the day?
Ginger: I ran out of coffee at home.
Ruby: Most people would go to a place where they sell coffee – you know, like, say, Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks or Caribou Coffee.
Ginger: But I forgot to go to the ATM yesterday on my way home from work.
Ruby: All of those places take plastic as payment, too.
Ginger: I have heard that. But your coffee is free when I bring my own mug.
Ruby: That’s my mug.
Ginger: And sharing is caring.
Ruby: Why are you here at six in the morning?
Ginger: Because I thought you would be sleeping?
Ruby: I was sleeping. Emphasis on the verb in the past tense.
Ginger: That is a shame. Emphasis on the verb in the present tense.
Ruby: You were planning on eating breakfast here, too, weren’t you?
Ginger: You made cinnamon rolls last night! You texted me to come over and have some so you wouldn’t eat them all yourself!
Ruby: I meant after work. Not several hours before work.
Ginger: Well, you should have specified.
Ginger: Are you going to join me for breakfast, or what?
Ruby: …well, since I’m up…I guess…
Ginger: Coffee in the pot is fresh.
Ruby: Did you use the Magic Beans?
Ginger: Well, I did forget it here on purpose after the shopping trip.
Ruby: I did notice that. Pass me a cinnamon roll, will you?
