A: Um... about last night...
B: I don't want to talk about that.
A: I usually don't do things like that... I don't know what came over me.
B: I'm surprised you even called.
A: Well, to be honest, I don't know why I called either. I did enjoy talking to you earlier in the evening... it made me feel... good.
B: I know what you mean...
A: So... um... you still want to go for coffee?
B: I think we're a little beyond that... don't you?
A: Shit...
B: I gotta go...
