the lost supper

[Afternoon. Summer leaching out of the sunlit sky. Palinode and Schmutzie are hungry.]

Schmutzie: We should go for lunch.

Palinode: Agreed. We should lunch.

Schmutzie: People don't use meals for verbs much these days. Breakfast, supper.

Palinode: Sure they do. For example, "Yo, 'sup" means "Hi there. Eat supper".

Schmutzie: No it does not.

Palinode: It's a timely reminder for an evening meal baked right into a greeting. Very efficient discourse.

Schmutzie: Not even close:

Palinode: ...

Palinode: It's Spanish.

Schmutzie: SHUT UP.

It's true, Schmutzie. And "Yo, bra" means, "Hello there, good sir! Care to join me in shopping for a manzierre?"

I'm with Schmutzie. What sushi dish did you arrive on?
