Alyssa had called her to get all the juicy details on her first date with Robbie. Robbie was under the impression that they had hit it off, and told his sister Alyssa all about it.
“Uh huh..uh huh… Ok Alyssa I get it, but he definitely asked me if white lillies would work as centerpieces for our wedding! WHAT WEDDING?! This was a first date!”
“Ok Alyssa (eyeroll) If you really don’t see a problem with that, then I don’t know what to tell you.”
“OMG are you crazy?! NO! I will NOT go out with him on a second date! I don’t care if he thought it went well!”
“ALYSSA!! What if he takes me to a chapel!!”
“NO! I do NOT think I’m overreacting! I understand he’s your brother, but that does not mean I want to marry him. Especially not on a second date!!”
“I cannot believe you’re really getting mad at me for this.”
“FINE! Then I’m mad at YOU for setting me up with Robbie in the first place!”
“I’m a WHAT!?”
“Oh..okay. So everyone that doesn’t want to marry Robbie is a bitch? Or is this title exclusive to me?”
“Yeah? How about YOU grow up! And while you’re at it, tell Robbie to grow up too!”
“I hate you more!… Hello? HELLO!?”
