At a big group dinner with Laura and Katherine, two Googlers that I see occasionally.
Katherine: These new "Sex in the City" ripoffs are so lame. Like the one with Lucy Liu. The characters are not believable.
Laura: The three of us need to make one.
Me: Where should it be set?
Katherine: Not here. Or NYC. Oh, it should be set in Rome.
Me: [appraising her] You could pass for being Italian.
Katherine: I AM Italian.
Me: Our show needs some kind of drama. Like, my character meets an Italian guy, and he's really cute. But it turns out he has chest hair.
Laura: Yeah! So much chest hair. But he's very sweet to you.
Me: Right, so my character is torn.
Laura: [offhandedly, while eating salad] The hair is on his back too.
Laura: He cooks dinner for you.
