ME: Hey! Are you still alive?
ME: I must have the wrong number, then.
ME: So, what's it like over there? Pretty insane?
JANE: Yeah. Luckily, I'm unemployed, so I never have to go anywhere.
ME: Everyone okay?
JANE: Everyone I know. Probably not the victims.
JANE: Hey, how come you never call me unless there's a terror attack?
ME: Your Catholic guilt won't work on me. I'm an atheist. Anyway, you live overseas. It costs a fortune to call you.
JANE: The last time you called me was when I was in New York on Sept. 11th. I still want to know why you never call me unless something blows up.
ME: Maybe a more pertinent question is why you're always around when there's a terrorist bombing.
ME: You should have stayed in Milton Keynes. Nobody's going to bomb Milton Keynes.
JANE: More's the pity.
ME: Okay, I'm gonna let you go. I'm losing your cell phone signal.
JANE: I blame the terrorists.
ME: You said your cell phone signal always sucks, though.
JANE: The terrorists really have it in for me.
