At a cafe. Late morning. Two writers.
Man: I heard a story just the other day of a woman who swallowed her contact lenses.
Woman: That’s hard to believe.
Man: She had woken up in the middle of the night and was thirsty and drank the contact lens bottle thinking it was the bottle of water.
Woman: Did the insurance cover that?
Woman: You never know.
Man: The next day she groped everyone at work and caused a fuss.
Woman: Did they send her to the eye doctor?
Man: No. They sent her home in a cab with a case of bottled water.
Calvin says, “Hm…I just thought of something. Dogs don’t have eye doctors. That could explain why we don’t come when you call us.”
