"Yo B, what's happening!"
"Still a going concern baby. What's happening at your end?"
"As usual, this MacDaddy double rules! All books closed on WD2-- 1 day earlier than agreed SLAs! First time I'm actually looking forward to our monthly post-mortem review!"
"Any news from C?"
"Yeah, that dude's on accelerated depreciation mode, bro. The last time I saw him, he looked like he aged 10 years since our last college reunion!"
"Damn, that SGV partnership path is a killer. Don't even have time to go out drinking with us, huh?"
"Oh well, no pain no gain."
"I thought he's getting conjugal soon?"
"Knowing that guy, he's gonna defer that decision for as long as he can. He's always going on and on about there being no tax advantages to marriage."
"Unless they go at it like rabbits and produce those tax-deductibles, stat!"
"Ha ha! Right! But the man has been dead set on coming up with a financial model first. You know, a cost-benefit analysis to see if those tax deductions can actually cover the cost of raising babies."
"Jeez, he shouldn't be thinking of kids as something that he can plot on a balance sheet."
"Agree! Nor should he look at marriage from a tax deductions point of view. He should be considering the intangibles as well, you know, love, happiness, fulfillment; the whole human experience!"
"You're so full of of shit! Why don't you take your own advice then?"
"Why don't you?"
"Well maybe I'm just waiting for C's financial model to be completed."
*LOOKS AT EACH OTHER*
"I'll drink to that!"
*LONG SIP FROM THE BEER BOTTLE*
"Say, what mutual fund are you into these days...?"
