Briefly

[This is where the summary would go if I'd bothered to write one.]

Soda Wars

her: You know what our problem is? You’re Pepsi and I’m Coke.

him: What?

her: You know what I’m talking about. You go along thinking there’s nothing wrong, or different but there is. And it’s as simple as the sodas we drink.

him: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

her: Yeah you do. You just don’t want to admit it. You’re a Pepsi trying to live in my Coke world and it’s not working.

him: Are you high?

her: Don’t do that. Don’t go all negative just because you don’t like what I’m saying.

him: That was a legitimate question. Let me smell that drink. You must be on something.

her: I’m not on anything. In fact, I hate to sound so cliché, but this is the clearest I’ve ever been. I was sitting here thinking about what our life would be like and all I kept seeing was you and me in some store, you reaching for Pepsi, me for Coke and I see now that it’s just not going to work.

him: Okaay. But we could buy both.

her: Oh sure. If we had the money but are we always going to have enough to buy the two? I’d like to think so, but I don’t know.

him: For someone who acts so sure about herself, you certainly say ‘I don’t know’ a lot.

her: I know.

him: Can’t we just shelve this for another day.

her: Don’t get cute with me. I’m trying to be serious here.

him: Yeah, serious. Sure.

her: Okay, well, I’ll tell you this. We’re always buying Coke. You hear me? I don’t care if Pepsi is on sale.

him: Right. Coke. Definitely. I can do that.

her: You’re humoring me, aren’t you?

him: Me? Nah. I’m just agreeing with you. It’s not the same thing.

her: Hmm. Okay. But we’re clear?

him: Clear as rain.
