"'Hi,' he replied coolly. 'So I was a t a party last night, and some girl assaulted me with this.' He pulled my baseball bat out from behind his back. 'I've spend all morning visiting the offices of every media outlet we invited, to see if I could find a girl who could give me a bruise with this bat as impressive as this one.'
Mark rolled up the sleeve of his white polo shirt, flashing me his bruised bicep.
'I'm so sorry', I told him.
'Don't be sorry', he replied. 'Just have dinner with me tonight.'"
