She Said: It’s 2:30.
He Said: So….that’s a no?
She Said: That’s a “are you freaking kidding me, do you know how much we have to do this weekend?”
He Said: Ok. So definitely a no then.
She Said: I mean, you can go. But you might not want to come home afterwards.
He Said: Ok. I’ll tell him maybe next time. But what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, you know?
She Said: Uh-huh. Except for Herpes. That stuff is gonna follow you home.
