(SHARON and JACK are on the phone. JACK is in New York City, SHARON is in a small town in New Hampshire.)
SHARON: It’s just so boring here. I’m dying.
JACK: You should move to New York!
SHARON: Haha, maybe I should.
JACK: I’m serious!
SHARON: But I haaaate New York.
JACK: I don’t get that!
SHARON: Why not?
JACK: Because New York is great!
SHARON: I mean, to be perfectly honest, I am considering it.
SHARON: I dunno. It’d be better than this shit town.
SHARON: But I mean, why New York, that’s the thing.
JACK: Why New York?! Because New York is awesome.
SHARON: No, but compared to like, Chicago, or San Francisco or something.
JACK: Nah, New York is way better than both of those cities combined.
SHARON: I just don’t like cities!
JACK: You’ll get used to it!
SHARON: Alright. Well. I’ll move to New York if you give me three good reasons why I should.
JACK: Seriously? Okay. Well. There’s lot of jobs.
SHARON: I dunno about that, in this economy.
JACK: No no no, it’s bad, but there’s still more jobs in New York than Bumfuck New Hampshire.
SHARON: Hey! That’s my home town you’re talking about.
JACK: Okay, well, there’s a lot to do. You can find everything, anything you want.
SHARON: I’ll give you that.
JACK: Great. That’s two reasons right there.
SHARON: I still don’t know about the jobs.
JACK: There’s a lot of great restaurants.
SHARON: That falls under the realm of “lots to do.”
SHARON: There’s a lot to do. That’s one thing. Separate things you can do don’t count as more reasons, that’s too easy.
SHARON: So, jobs – I mean, technically, that’s something to do, but I’ll give it to you, that’s one. Two: lots to do. Three?
SHARON: I really don’t like cities that much.
JACK: Well, there’s the people.
SHARON: The people?
JACK: Yeah, the people here are really great, and friendly, and warm.
SHARON: That’s the exact opposite of everything I have ever heard about New Yorkers.
JACK: Well, not all the people are mean.
SHARON: You’re being so convincing.
JACK: No! Seriously. There’s a lot of really nice people. People who care. People who just want to be friends and hang out.
SHARON: I can find people like that anywhere.
SHARON: Seriously, no one place has “special” people. Everyone is the same everywhere. I can find friends anywhere.
JACK: Well, what about me?
I’ve been super busy lately. We’re going into tech week for our next show and I had to be in the office and then do focus, so it’s been hectic. And I know I didn’t post anything yesterday. I feel bad. But people fail and I shouldn’t lose my mind over it. :/
