Nerddd: It was great meeting your cousins!
MP: They're wonderful, aren't they? I like them a lot.
Nerddd: Lovely! They're lovely and funny and fun!
(brief pause during which our Nerddd and her MP walk, hand in hand)
Nerddd: Do you think they liked me?
MP: I'm sure they did. Why wouldn't they like you. What's there not to like...?
Our Nerddd stops walking.
Nerddd: Wait. Seriously? OMG! I knew I should've shut my mouth but I kept going and going and going about the Gracies. I almost couldn't stop.
Nerddd: And all of that talk about Renzo Gracie not tapping out in spite of breaking his arm. Fuck!
Nerddd: It was all a bit strange to them, I'm sure. They listened attentively enough.
MP: Darling, I don't think they knew what to make of you. You were positively gushing.
Our Nerddd resumes walking.
Nerddd (muttering): Don't blame me. I grew up with two older brothers.
