"Wait. Did I miss something? What on earth are you doing here??"

4. Frantic tidying up.

"You'll have to excuse my fossil collection..."

5. Trying mighty hard to play it cool.

It's all good. You've got this.

6. Awkward conversation.


"Sooooo, what about that, um, thing that, um, you were doing last time?!"

7. Unexpected entertainment.

"Did you know I learned how to play guitar?! And the harmonica?!"

8. Resolve to leave.

"OK then, I better get back to my, um, stuff now! It's been real."

9. A cordial farewell.

"We should make plans real soon. I'll call you..."
