[I have phone to my ear]
Me: This is fucking amazing! I can't believe I'm going on a date with a Na'vi princess! What? Oh yeah, I'll give you the deets on that crazy ponytail-docking sex for sure. Oh dude, I think she just got here - later.
[Na'vi princess is looking around the restaurant]
Me: Hey, are you Neytiri?
Neytiri: Yep. And you must be Dan.
Me: It's great to meet you.
[I stick out my hand for a handshake, then decide that a hug is in order. Neytiri and I do a distant, butt sticking out half-hug. We both sit down at the table]
Me: So you went to Brown, right?
Neytiri: What? No, I've lived my whole life on Pandora. I just got to Earth a few months ago.
Me: Oh, got it. I just thought that might be where you knew Anna from.
Neytiri: No, Anna and I are in the same yoga class.
Me: Downward Dog!
Me: How's Anna doing these days? I heard she was gonna do the whole corporate law thing for a few years, pay back the loans, and then move to a non-profit like she always wanted. Greenpeace, I think. No, no - the ACLU.
Neytiri: Maybe - we don't really talk about that stuff in class.
Me: Isn't the decor here cool? The floorboards are from an old warehouse.
Me: In Brooklyn.
Me: It's a meme!
Neytiri: What's a meme?
