She: So what do you do?

Me: Um. I’m a writer.


She: I hate reading.


Me: I’m not sure the word ‘dude’ was used during the Civil War.

He: How would you know?


Me: So you have an agent looking at your book? That’s great! Did you send a synopsis?

He: A what?


She: I’m writing a post-modern cyberpunk romance between three people.

Me: Among three people. Between would be if there were only two people.

She: Asshole. Fuck you.


Me: You might consider joining a couple of writing groups. You could get your book critiqued.

She: Nah. I don’t want anyone to read it.


She: It’s the story of a woman’s love affair with a horse.

Me: You’re kidding.

She: No.


Me: I write novels.

She: You mean, like fiction?


He: I’ve always wanted to write a book.

Me: Great idea; you should take a weekend off and do it!

He: I just might!


She: I have a great idea for a book! It’ll be a sure-fire bestseller.  I’ll give you half the profit if you write it.

Me: No.


She: I started reading your book but I didn’t finish it.

Me: . . .


He: I own a book.

Me: Me too.
