At the Counter: just gabbin

John Steppenwolf: so the guy says "where are my boots?"

Niall Carter (pause):  . . . and?

Steppenwolf:  well, that's the punch line.  "where are my boots?"  Really?   I don't believe you guys!   That's funny.

The Barista walks away, shaking her head.

Verble Gherulous:  maybe if you had a different buildup.   I don't know.  I'll think about it.

Steppenwolf (drinking his coffee): you guys have no sense of humour.

From at the other end of the counter, the Barista suddenly laughs:  BOOTS!   NOW I get it!!

Steppenwolf (one hand, palm up, toward Verble, the other hand, the same, toward Niall Carter):  there!  Someone finally gets it!
