"Glenn, what's wrong?"
"Nothing."
"Nothing? C'mon, you've been moping all evening. What's up?"
"It's nothing. Really."
"You just seem so distracted."
"Well, I guess."
"You don't want to talk about it?"
"Well, I'm not sure you'd understand."
"Try me."
"It's kind of silly, actually."
"Not if you're acting like this."
"Well, it's these two guys I know."
"Yeah, go on."
"See, one of them really liked Prince of Persia, but the other one, who sort of knows about these things, really didn't like it. Hated it in fact. They started sort of sniping at each other, just little stuff. And everyone usually gets along so well, it was kind of hard seeing them at odds, y'know? Anyway a few other folks chimed in with their opinions, mostly at odds with 'Hook, and it just sort of left a sour taste in my mouth. And another guy went out and tried it himself and decided that he kind of liked it, and I just sort of wish the whole thing hadn't come up, y'know? It's silly, and I'm sure you don't understand."
"Prince of Persia?"
"Yeah."
"What is that?"
"A game."
"A game?"
"Well, a video game, actually."
"A video game?"
"Yeah."
"You're all distracted because a couple of your friends are arguing about a video game?"
"Well, sort of, I guess. I guess their my friends."
"Do you know them?"
"Well, yeah, sort of, I guess."
"Sort of?"
"I've never actually met them, see."
"So you're upset because two guys you've never seen disagree about a computer game?"
"Console game, actually. I told you you wouldn't understand."
"Glenn?"
"Yes."
"That may be the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my entire life."
"Um, I kind of thought you might feel that way."
"You're not thinking about buying that game, are you?"
"No no no no, no. No. No. I really doubt it."
"You're going to buy another game?"
"No, no. Probably not. Not soon, anyway."
"Not soon?"
"Well, not before Christmas. Probably."
"You are hopeless."
