she gets questioned by her girlfriend

about her recent husband

(asks questions about how his business is

going, asks questions about their new


being young & all

she is grilled by the other

as to her plans for the future &

in comparison to her inquisitor

she feels the need to brag on a

bit about a

“possible future” not yet put in


(hopes & dreams not discussed with

said new husband)---

this leads her inquisitor to get on

the defensive, though still smiling &

promoting the mutual amiability between


with her body language &

references to the past when they were

both younger.


and as if the two are both pocketing

their own score cards,

they scribble down inside their minds

those things that they must improve upon

within their individual lives

(after comparing themselves to each


so that if they ever do meet again,

they will have the best chance possible

to one-up the other---

after all,

this is what friendship is all about.
