Lorelai: I just finished reading a book about how to get the most out of life. Starting today, I’m going to live life to its fullest.

Luke: Oh no, not another one of your fads. Weren’t you eating only blue- and red-colored foods a couple of months ago?

Lorelai: This is not a fad! I’m changing my lifestyle so I’ll be able to live a happier and more fulfilling life.

Luke: And didn’t you go through a phase where you spoke only to animals?

Lorelai: I’m not listening to you, and I’m not dwelling on the past. I’m living in the moment and enjoying everything around me. I’m ignoring your negativity and concentrating on appreciating the moment.

Luke: What are you doing now?

Lorelai: I’m practicing mindfulness. I’m repeating my mantra and calming my mind. You should try meditation. It may help you with your problems.

Luke: What problems?

Lorelai: We could start with your judgmental attitude and your close-mindedness. How’s that?

Luke: Forget it! Nothing can get me to buy your latest hocus pocus!
