Box­ing Day

Tehran Times - - WOMEN -

A: What do you think of this one?

B: Eh, so so.

A: And this one? Too flashy?

B: Nah, not too flashy.

A: Uhg! And this sweater from my aunt? Isn’t it hideous?

B: I guess.

A: Are you even lis­ten­ing? I’m try­ing to have a con­ver­sa­tion with you.

B: And I’m try­ing to watch the game, but you’re yap­ping on about your new clothes!

A: Well I have to de­cide which gifts to keep and which to ex­change for bet­ter ones when I go to the Box­ing Day sales this af­ter­noon! B: Well could you do me the fa­vor of mak­ing this quick? It’s the third quar­ter and you’ve been blab­ber­ing on since the first! A: Oh, your pre­cious game.

Why don’t you just just go and re­turn all of those stupid clothes and not come back un­til the sales are over?

A: I might just! En­joy your stupid game!

B: And Merry Christ­mas!

A: Merry Christ­mas!
