Hi there, Nikip!

I agree with Kate that you have to stay with this - it's such an interesting, unexpected little slice of life, and I read it really wondering what is going to happen next.  As you know from our discussion of Kate's play, this to me is a big win.  Is he going to hit on her?  Is her going to mug her?  Then he starts talking about Shakespeare and Of Mice and Men.  Fabulous.

The questions that the man asks and what he describes reveal so much about him - I was curious to learn more about the woman - some idiosyncratic detail.

I think you have the beginning of a longer play here.  They have to see each other again.  Something has to happen. 

Yay for you!

Best wishes,
