After running in the rain, Sarah develops a crush on him, and I am giddy over all the teasing I get to do. I spend time thinking of new quips to make—things about his “crazy” clothes and how he and Sarah are a perfect couple since he almost never talks and she does nothing but.
He grumbles and snarks about my future in standup and I flit around him, chattering and laughing—this is way too much fun to pass up (I’m not friends with Leah for nothing). The one that makes him maddest is the one about how he’ll be related to Peter—all those holidays and family reunions. He growls, then kisses me to shut me up, and I can’t complain or tease at all, because I can’t catch my breath.
