SAMIRA: Aaron was here. He needs the notes from Orgo.
GRACE: Oh man, are you ok?
SAMIRA: Of course, why wouldn’t I be ok?
GRACE: If you say so.
SAMIRA: You know me, I bounce back!
GRACE: Uh huh.
SAMIRA: Oh ye of little faith.
GRACE: Besides the Orgo notes, did he say anything else?
SAMIRA: Not exactly.
GRACE: What is “not exactly”?
SAMIRA: He wanted to know if I was going to talk about him at the dating panel.
GRACE: Oh god, he actually said that?
GRACE: He is so ridiculous.
SAMIRA: No he’s not, he just wanted to be prepared.
GRACE: Uh huh.
SAMIRA: You sure are skeptical recently.
GRACE: Not skeptical, realistic.
SAMIRA: Anyway, I told him I didn’t know what I was going to talk about.
GRACE: You should probably have some notes.
SAMIRA: I guess, but how do I really predict what people are going to ask?
GRACE: It’s a panel right? Don’t you have to say something first, before people ask questions?
GRACE: Better get writing! What else did you tell him?
SAMIRA: Who? Aaron? Um, I told him I didn’t expect to fall for someone who wasn’t brown.
GRACE: How did he take that?
SAMIRA: Not well.
GRACE; No kidding, he’s Middle Eastern!
SAMIRA: He has green eyes!
GRACE: Samira, come on, you know better.
SAMIRA: Ugh, it was in the moment. It came out wrong.
GRACE: You know, you could talk about that.
SAMIRA: About what?
GRACE: Dating as a pale brown person.
SAMIRA: Ha, pale brown, it’s like an oxymoron.
GRACE: Feeling the need the play up the brownness.
SAMIRA: Is that what it is?
GRACE: Could be? You should at least consider it.
SAMIRA: I guess.
