Guido: Whoa, check you out! That’s a great costume. Are you going to the Star Trek Convention?

Rita: Yeah, it’s in town until Sunday. Have you ever been to one?

Guido: Me? No way! Don’t get me wrong. I’m a fan of the shows. And, no offense, but I thought only geeks went to the conventions.

Rita: Yeah, I thought that, too, until I went last year with my friend Claire and we had a great time.

Guido: Claire? Your gorgeous roommate Claire? That Claire?

Rita: Yeah, there were exhibitions from collectors and we got autographs from two of the show’s stars. The highlight was when the stars came out and spoke to the crowd…Hey, do you want to come with us?

Guido: It actually sounds like fun, but I can’t make it today.

Rita: How come?

Guido: Uh…well…I’m going to the comic book convention.

Rita: Oh, I see. Well, maybe next year. Live long and prosper…

Guido: Uh, yeah. You, too. Hey, tell Claire I said “hi.”

Rita: Sure. See you later.
