Steve: I bought two tickets to a concert that Laura wants to go to and offered to take her as my, get this, date!
Estelle: Ooh, that's nice!
Steve: Well, no, it's not nice!
Estelle: It's not?
Steve: Well, Laura doesn't want a date with me.
Estelle: Are you sure?
Steve: Positive. When I suggested it, her lovely eyes were momentarily clouded with nausea.
