Nalini: Hi Caleb, thanks for doing this. I think I’ve scared off my friends from doing interviews with me. It’s really really nice of you to take time out from your schedule to fit me in.
Caleb: (Looks up from brief he’s drafting) Yes?
Nalini: Okay, right I get the hint. You want me to get a move on.
Caleb: (Returns to his work).
Nalini: Um, hey, so my question was, how are things with Victoria?
Caleb: (Puts down pen very calmly) My wife and I are both fine.
Nalini: I thought you two were, you know, separated?
Caleb: We’re working through some problems but Vicki is still my wife. And she will always be my wife.
Nalini: Aren’t you living in a hotel?
Caleb: That’s a temporary situation.
Nalini: I must’ve been mistaken – I thought you’d been there for nearly two months. Didn’t Victoria say that she was going to divorce…(shuts up at look on Caleb’s face).
Caleb: I’m leaving to meet my wife for lunch. This interview is over.
Nalini: Well good luck with the whole separation thing.
Caleb: (Plants hands on desk and leans over) There. Is. No. Separation. We’re husband and wife.
Nalini: Yes, okay, of course. Husband and wife. Just that you like to live in a hotel. I can get that – don’t have to do the dishes or make the bed. Definitely a good choice. Definitely. Okay, I’ll just show myself out then. Right. Bye.
