Scene: An open room off the side of the cubicle farm. Four employees are working diligently to meet a deadline. Various small talk over the hours has included the Kardashians, Nicki Minaj, and Lady Gaga - conversations Allison cannot participate in because she lives in her own bubble that excludes much of society and pop culture. She perks up when she hears two coworkers across the room talking books.
Coworker #1: I really like The Lord of the Rings. The movies are good, but the books are even better. Then again, I love Tolkien.
Coworker #2: What's Tolkien?
Coworker #1: An author. He was good friends with C.S. Lewis, which explains a lot.
Coworker #2: Who's C.S. Lewis?
Coworker #1: He wrote The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Coworker #2: Oh.
Coworker #1: You should read it. If you like to read. I like to read. Sometimes. It's good to read sometimes. But not all the time! I hate people that read all the time.
Coworker #3: stares at Allison
Allison: keeps working so she can go home and finish that book she's reading
