It’s Friday evening. A mobile phone rings and vibrates annoyingly on a desk. We see a tired and stressed geek pick it up and hit the answer button.
Purrplechick: “We’re just on our way back from Tesco and are going to make some sushi. Would you like to join us?”
Geek: “Yes please! Actually I just released Feeder 1.3… .126.96.36.199.1”
Purrplechick: “Does that actually mean anything?”
Geek: “No… only the last six months of my life.”
Purrplechick: “Whatever. We need a little time to prepare, can you come up in about an hour?”
Purrplechick: “That was a bit too easy. No procrastination or fuss about what you should wear or how long it will take to do your hair?”
Geek: “This is sushi we’re talking about and I know you bought that sake set in IKEA. I would turn up in my birthday suit if I had to.”
Purrplechick: “Ooh err.”
Geek: “It’s OK, I’m not going to.”
Purrplechick: “Thank fuck for that. See you later then.”
Like my friends, the sushi was amazing.
