Rosa: Has the mail come yet?
Grant: We didn’t get any mail today.
Rosa: Damn it!
Grant: What’s the matter?
Rosa: I’m waiting for an invitation from Joanna to her birthday party. I heard that she’s having a big bash and it’s going to be the party of the season.
Grant: You’re worked up over a party?
Rosa: It’s not just any party. It’s the social event of the year. Anyone who’s anybody will be there. If I don’t get an invitation, it means I’ve been snubbed. I’d never be able to live it down.
Grant: Who is Joanna anyway? She’s just another rich girl, right?
Rosa: No, she’s not. She’s the most popular girl at school and the leader of the in-crowd. If she so much as talks to you, you’re in. But if she gives you the cold shoulder, you’re out. You’re nobody.
Grant: That’s ridiculous. She only has the power to do that because you all worship her. One of these days, I hope somebody takes her down a peg.
Rosa: But nobody would dare to go against Joanna. It would be the end of their social life.
Grant: So what?
Rosa: So what?! I should know better than to talk about it with a clueless guy!
