T 1 Well, have you made up your mind yet?
T 2 I did.
T 1 So, you’re going to it?
. And be part of the “in” crowd?
T 2 I have decided... no.
T 1 So you do NOT want to be part of the “in” crowd.
T 2 That is correct.
T 1 Are you crazy?
T 2 I would be crazy to do what you’re talking about.
T 1 Is this because your mommy and daddy said so?
T 2 My parents love me, and want to protect me.
. And they actually know stuff.
T 1 Oh – you mean – that God-and-Bible stuff?
T 2 That too! Speaking of which,
. God loves me, and wants to protect me as well.
T 1 So you’re just going to do what they say?
. You’re just going to let them control you?
T 2 I LISTEN to what they say,
. And then I DECIDE to do what they say.
T 1 WHY?!
T 2 Because I love and respect myself.
. These sorts of things can wreck a person’s life.
T 1 Are you afraid?
T 2 Ah, yeah! Well, not afraid-afraid. I just want
. to avoid doing things that would wreck my life.
T 1 Psh! You’re so weak.
T 2 If I was weak, I would cave,
. and do what you’re talking about.
T 1 So you want to fight about it?
T 2 No. I’m just working on being strong.
. I just want to take everything into consideration
. and make good decisions for myself.
T 1 I don’t see how we can be friends anymore.
T 2 Hm... It’s too bad.
T 1 And if you think you can just change your mind,
. you can forget about it. We’re done!
T 2 Well, if you change YOUR mind,
. you know where to find me.
