Elliot opened his newspaper with a crisp snap.

“Are you reading an actual paper? Who does that?” asked Jessica.

“You just don’t appreciate the finer things in life. You probably even like comic sans.”

Jessica snarled at Elliot, “That’s just mean.”

Elliot laughed. “I bet you wrote your resume in comic sans.”

“That’s enough.”

“Is it your default on your word processor?”

Jessica grabbed a pen and threw it off Elliot’s head.


Jessica smiled. “What’s wrong? You should appreciate that. A pen is old school. It would hurt a lot more if I threw a laptop at you.”
