Scene 3: Wednesday at work. Lou is still suffering from her lack of Go Lean bar goodness.
Lou: You know what goes great with my medium Dunkin Donuts coffee?
Lou: Sighs. A Go Lean bar. But instead, I had to bring a hard-boiled egg for breakfast.
@: The city must be experiencing a shortage of Go Lean bars.
Lou: I can’t allow myself to believe that @ Sign. I know—in my heart of hearts—that there are Go Lean bars out there… somewhere in this big city… just waiting to be bought and taken home by someone who really loves them.
Lou: I’m going to find them. I’m going to make it my mission to find the lost Go Lean bars today.
@: Good luck with that.
Lou: Hey, @ Sign, where is that Jewel anyway?
@: State and Grand. Near the El stop.
Lou: I don’t want to walk that far. I hope Trader Joe’s finally got a shipment in.
@: It’s not that far.
Lou: Well, it’s farther than I want to walk.
[Lou leaves the office around 11:30am in search of Go Lean bars. She returns at 11:40]
@: That was quick.
Lou: Holding up a TJ’s bag for @ to see. I bought nine. They didn’t have even have them out yet. The Go Lean Crunchy Chocolate and Peanut bars were just sitting in their boxes in the aisle waiting to be unloaded.
Lou: I triumphed over adversity once again.
@: Yeah… whatever.
