The scene: A bourgeois apartment in the 5th. The two young children are sleeping soundly in their beds and their super-nounou is reading Le Figaro and waiting (im)patiently for the parents to come home. All of the sudden, she hears a knock at the door and thinks "Now who can that be?"
Monoprix Delivery Dude: Hi, I have a delivery for Mme X
Super-nounou: Okay, I'll take it
MDD: Do you have money for the payment?
SNN: Oh, it's not paid for? Nope, sorry, they didn't leave me anything.
MDD: Will they be back soon?
SNN: Hopefully in a half an hour.
MDD: )àç&"é'! It's my last delivery of the night and I just want to get home. I've been working since 10am.
SNN: Silence (Why is he racont-ing me his vie??)
MDD: Fine, I'll just wait for them to come back.
SNN: (waits for him to go back down to his truck so she can close the door)
MDD: (waits for SNN to invite him in)
SNN: (no way in hell is this guy coming in here, Mme X would kill me. or hell, maybe he might kill me)
*akward stand off ensues for a few minutes*
MDD: So....are you a student?
MDD: So you watch the kids full-time then?
SNN: No, I also have another job.
(mindless small talk for about ten minutes and then comes THE question SNN had been desperately trying to avoid)
MDD: So...are you single?
SNN: (makes the fatal error of saying Yes)
MDD: What are you doing later on tonight?
SNN: Sorry, I've got plans.
MDD: And after?
SNN: Nah, I'm not interested.
MDD: Why not?
SNN: Cuz I just got out of a long term relationship and I'm not looking for anything serious right now.
MDD: But you do go out with guys?
SNN: I go on dates every once in a while, yeah.
MDD: But nothing serious?
SNN: I told you, I'm happy with my life and I don't really feel the need to have a man right now. I'm taking care of myself, I don't have to cook or clean for anyone but me....(why I am even justifying myself to this guy?)
MDD: But what about your sex life?
MDD: You do sleep with the guys you go out with, right?
MDD: What? When was the last time you had sex??
SNN: (Why do I keep answering his questions?? Why am I not telling him to fuck off and then slamming the door in his face?)
MDD: Non, you can't be serious? That's not healthy!!
SNN: I don't know, I'm feeling pretty fine.
MDD: No, I'm telling you, it's not good for your body. I could never do that. You should really remedy this (*leaning in*)
SNN: Uh.....thanks but no thanks.
MDD: Are you free tomorrow night? Maybe we could go out?
SNN: Um, nope, gotta watch the small childrens tomorrow night too. (picks up the phone and tries to call the mom for the millionth time - where on Earth is that woman??)
MDD: What about this weekend? It doesn't have to be a serious relationship, just sexual.
SNN: (DUDE - just give up!) Nope, busy this weekend too.
Enter Mme X, who comes running up the stairs and looks back and forth from MDD and SNN. "SNN, can you wait a sec while I run and get my checkbook?"
But SNN was already long gone.....
