Learning To Love You More




Assignment #37
Write down a recent argument.

Berkeley, California USA



L: So a guy from my lab is from Japan. He's been here for six years with his wife. She hates it here and wants to go back to Japan. But he wants to stay. So he's torn about where he should go.
J: Why are you telling me this?
L: I was just wondering what I'd do if I were in his shoes.
J: You're worried about next year aren't you?
L: No.
J: But you wouldn't be thinking about these things if you weren't.
L: I guess I am a little.
J: Look, I don't want you to change your plans because of me. Make your decisions as if you were single. I'm not going to be happy about it, but if you need to go to dental school out of state, so be it.
L: But if I go to school out of state, I'd probably have to stay there a few years after graduation to establish myself.
J: Well the same goes for me in law school. My world is only as big as Southern California. I plan to live and die in SoCal. Whatever you decide, keep that in mind.
L: Oh... what if I go to school in Australia?
J: Then you can marry an Aussie.
L: (sighs)
J: Anyway, it's not like we're going to come to any conclusion about this tonight.
L: Yeah... and we still have a year together. Let's just enjoy our time together now. Okay babe?
J: Yeah...
