Story #131 - Better put the kettle on

"Come to papa..."
"... That didn't last long, love."
"I go too excited. I haven't seen you in a long, long time."
"Long? It's been three weeks, hun."
"An eternity in my book."
"Oh. You know that's the smallest amount of time I see anyone, unless we see each other for a pint. But for this...I need my space."
"Oh, come on. Can we make it two weeks?"
"How about two and a half and a Starbucks coffee?"
"Tempting. Now, if know...would last longer, then we might actually be talking sensible terms."
"Exactly. You just shrug and that's all there is to it. You don't help yourself. And that's a damn shame."
"Next time. I promise."
"Haven't I heard that one before?"
