Ruby: Ginger, did you know it is possible to use a hot glue gun without removing layers of skin?
Ginger: I have heard that. I think it’s a myth.
Ruby: It’s really not.
Ginger: Then why are we applying first aid to my fingers?
Ruby: Because you are not trained in the proper use of a hot glue gun.
Ginger: I am trained on how to use power tools.
Ruby: I am aware of that.
Ginger: I have never lost a digit, a limb or an eye.
Ruby: I am also aware of that.
Ginger: So, why do I have to be trained to use super-heated glue?
Ruby: May I direct your attention to the numerous unicorn-and-fairy-covered band-aids decorating your fingertips?
Ruby: Because you seem to be under the impression that they’re normally there.
Ginger: …they’re just a different form of nail polish. Like stickers that cover my nails.
Ruby: And your fingertips.
Ginger: Well. Yeah.
Ruby: You know that when the glue comes out of the glue gun, it’s still really hot, right?
Ginger: Yes. I know that.
Ginger: I know that…now.
Ruby: Really? Now?
Ginger: Yes. Now.
Ruby: You didn’t pick up on that after the first burn?
Ginger: It might have occurred to me, but I think I really got it this time.
Ruby: You sure about that?
Ruby: Because I have heard the stories from your mother regarding your hot glue mishaps in the past.
Ginger: …okay, but I really have it this time.
Ruby: I wish I could believe you.
Ginger: Yeah… Me, too. But the unicorn band-aids are cute!
Ruby: Stop touching hot glue.
