A: How's it going, An?
An: Oh, hi there, A.
A: You're looking down.
An: Yeah, I guess.
A: What's wrong?
A: Like what stuff?
An: Well, I'm not sure I can describe it exactly.
A: That's okay; it's often hard to describe exact feelings.
An: I'll say.
A: But, sometimes just talking about general feelings can help narrow down what's bugging you.
An: Yeah, they have a whole industry devoted to that, don't they?
A: Yep. Counseling works, my friend... good ol' talk therapy.
An: I know that... it's just...
An: That's all I ever get.
A: Not following you.
An: I mean. I get down, but I don't know why.
A: Right, most people never know what's bothering them.
An: But we're articles right?
An: You're A article, and I'm An article.
An: We spend our lives defining things, but I can't figure out why I feel so crappy.
A: That's a good point.
An: See, that's what I'm getting at.
An: You said "That's a good point."
A: Yes, I did.
An: But it's not The good point, is it?
A: Well, I suppose it could be.
An: But it's not, and that's the point.
A: There, now it's the point?
A: See, it was just a good point, now it's the point.
An: I think we were referring to different things though.
A: No. Same point.
An: No, no, no, no... Here, let me explain: (quickly) you were responding to my comment about not being able to define what's wrong with me, you said it was "a good point". I then pointed out that the point was that a point had been made but not the point, and the point about which I was speaking was a point that a point was, indeed, not the point that we needed which would help me define my point about not knowing what was bothering me so much more clearly.
A: Ohhhhh! That point!
A: Your point.
A: (pause) You know... you could change your view on things a little.
A: Add a little definition to your unspecificality.
An: How so?
A: You could start referring to yourself as the article An.
An: (light bulb goes on) Oh!
A: Yeah, and I could be the article A.
An: Yeah! You're right! Fuckin' A, A! (high five)
A: Yeah, just add a little definitiveness to your indefinitivity.
An: Hey! That's great!
A: Glad you like it.
An: I love it! I'm going to start now. I feel better already! Thanks so much; I mean it!
A: No problem.
(An starts leaving, he turns around)
A: Yeah, An?
An: You're a great friend, you know that?
A: I like to think of myself as the great friend A.
(lights start fading)
An: That's a...
A: Great point?
An: (overlapping) great point.... yeah...
A: Definitely one of the best, man. Definitely.
An: Yeah... definitely.
(An exits, lights out)
