(Diana works tirelessly in the side office, hiding what she’s doing)
JEN: (pops her head in) Yo. Whatcha doin’?
DIANA: (wildly tosses newspapers over her work) HI!! NOTHING! HI! WHAT’S UP?!? HOW’S IT GOIN?
JEN: Dude, what are you doing?
DIANA: Nothing! Let’s talk outside in the foyer.
JEN: Are you making something??
DIANA: No. (barricades the doorway)
JEN: (pushes her way through) You are! You’re making…
(Jen lifts the newspapers to reveal a bouquet of origami flowers)
JEN: Flowers! For me?
DIANA: Yes, peach. I’m afraid you’ve ruined the surprise.
JEN: But why flowers? Is it my birthday?
DIANA: Nope. It’s our one-year DISGRASIAN anniversary. Well, it soon will be. This weekend.
JEN: You remembered!
DIANA: I did!
JEN: And here I just bought you a new Marni bag to commemorate our union.
DIANA: You didn’t! You shouldn’t have.
JEN: I did.
DIANA: I can’t believe it’s been a whole year. We’ve come so far. We’ve accomplished so much.
JEN: It’s true. Do you think any of our friends will give us presents for our anniversary?
DIANA: Like who? RJ? Ty? Jasmine? Henri? April? Erin? Benna? Slanty? Chris? Jru? Greenie? Angry? G Scott? Eliza? Your Mom and Dad? Um, for starters?
JEN: Yes, like those people. Most of them have the mailing address for DISGRASIAN HQ. And, I mean, for those who don’t, a gift certificate via email can be so chic. Only in circumstances such as this, of course.
DIANA: So chic. Wow, I really love presents.
JEN: Me too. Anyway, I’m proud of us for getting to a year. It’s been a lot of work, pain, tears, bouts of exhaustion, and sleepless nights… but so worth it!
DIANA: Me too! What more could a person want out of life besides a Volvo, their health, Marni, and a rad blog partnership?
DIANA: Happy early anniversary, Jen.
JEN: Happy early anniversary, Diana.
