So I drag a couple of friends to see a play for the first time. Ok, second time, but the first time was within college, so this was still exciting. While waiting for the play to start, one of my friends excuses himself for a minute and goes to chat with a girl he apparently knows. When he came back, I informed him that was the play’s director. After a brief silence, he relates the conversation they just had.
Friend : Heya (and other assorted greetings)
Director: Uh huh (and other reluctant acknowledgments)
F: So what’re you doing here?
D (confused): Er.. Just hanging about generally.. What about you?
F (pretending to be bored to be at the play): Oh nothing. Have to do something for timepass right? Haha..
The play was witty, but that wasnt the only reason I laughed so hard that day.
