Friend: Lets go to Lindblum next week?
Bruno: Why next week?
Friend: I don’t know.
Bruno: Why not today?
Friend: Because I can’t be that spontaneous.
Bruno: Why not?
Friend: It’s just not me.
Bruno: But how can I plan something for next week, that’s scary.
Friend: So you are afraid of commitment.
Bruno: It’s not that, but I can’t think that far ahead, and if I say yes now, I’ll probably forget or change my mind, or make other plans, or just start worrying, because it’s like a burden having to think now that I have something to do next week.
Friend: But I live a miserable life so I need something to look forward to, and this trip may just be that one thing that will make the rest of this week feel less miserable.
Bruno: I see, like putting a band-aid on a scar that needs stitches.
Friend: Exactly, this trip will be the temporary solution to all my life problems and dilemmas.
Bruno: That’s so very mature of you.
Friend: So, what do you say? Are you coming?
Bruno: I told you I can go today, but if you want me to go next week, you’re gonna have to ask me next week. Preferably on the same day.
Friend: It looks like we’re never gonna do anything together.
Bruno: Well, not with that attitude.
