Did You Know?
How long have you been seeing her?
Four months now.
Four months? Why didn't you tell me about this?
Well, Madeline is a little older than I am. I didn't want to be judged on something so irrevelent as age.
Joe, who am I to judge anybody on relationships? I only hope that if one day I have a slightly odd relationship, you will not judge me.
