Lois: Please don’t embarrass me at the party tonight.
Roger: Me, embarrass you? I’d never do that.
Lois: You have, though, more than once.
Roger: Name one.
Lois: At the Johnsons’ party, you danced on the table while singing “I Am Woman”!
Roger: I was being the life of the party. Everybody thought it was funny.
Lois: It was humiliating! Didn’t you notice more than one person cringing and the awkward silence in the room when your song ended?
Roger: No, I didn’t, but I did notice Malik laughing his head off and the Johnsons smiling.
Lois: That’s because Malik has your sense of humor and the Johnsons were humoring you. They were trying to put a good face on your impromptu performance.
Roger: I’m not going to be a wallflower just because you can’t take a joke. My exuberant personality is what gets us invited to so many parties.
Lois: Yeah, right. Can I at least get you to promise not to sing?
Roger: And disappoint my audience? Not a chance!
