NEW DOG

"Is that your new dog?"

"Yeah, don't look him in the eyes."

"Why not?"

"He doesn't like it."

"What's his problem?"

"Nothing. What do you mean? He just doesn't like eye-contact."

"Will he bite me?"

"I don't know.... I doubt it. He just gets depressed easy."

"Oh... So how's the new girl? ...what's-her-face..."

"Julia. She's pretty good. I'm happy."

"You look happy."

"She doesn't like my music. I finish a new song... one that I'm especially proud of, and we put it in the car stereo and she feigns interest for a couple seconds and then she turns it down so she can tell me about some stupid shit somebody said at work. She's planning a trip to Mexico in a couple weeks. She's going alone. She thinks I'm irritating. We have nothing in common."

"I was just looking your dog in the eyes."

"I told you not to."

"He looks disappointed."

"Yeah."

"Sorry."
