Ben: BooBoo, why is it dusty in your living room?
Me: I stopped the cleaning lady from coming over.
M: I should be able to clean my own apartment.
B: Yes, you should.
M: But I don't want to.
B: But you can afford it.
M: I'm trying not to waste money. We have a wedding to plan.
B: It's not a waste of money, it's a service.
M: I just wish I could save money and have my apartment cleaned by someone else.
B: You could drink less Starbucks Iced Tea, to save money.
M: That's crazy talk!
B: So, clean your apartment.
M: You make it sound so simple.
B: It is, really.
M: I know. That's what so annoying.
B: When I move in, I will help clean.
M: You'll dust?
B: No, I will mop the kitchen and clean the bathroom. They need attention as well.
M: In my defense, my bed is made every morning, like clockwork.
B: It should be.
M: Don't I get credit for that?
B: You want me to praise you for doing something you're supposed to do?
M: Yes. Yes, I do.
B: I will not.
M: I guess I'll get to dusting.
