Friend 1: It’s true.
Digitaldash: What’s true?
Friend 1: That the world’s going to end in 2012.
Digitaldash: Oh, you’ve seen the movie?
Friend 1: No. It’s not about the movie. The Mayans said so.
Digitaldash: They’re ancient people.
Friend 1: …and Nostradamus also predicted the end of the world will be in 2012.
Digitaldash: Oh, the scientists don’t think so.
Friend 2: So when?
Friend 1: But it won’t happen in one day.
Digitaldash: So it’ll be a series of…
Friend 1: unfortunate events, yes.
Digitaldash (still preparing stuff for crosstraining the following day): Like Ondoy, then an earthquake…
Friend 1: Exactly, that’s why… (tuned out)
Friend 2: (tuned out)
Digitaldash (finally zipping her gym bag): That’s why I’ll do my full marathon by next year.
