A: We’re here, we’re here! Are you ready? Tadaaa!
B: Wow, it’s bigger than I imagined.
A: Nice right?
B: Needs a lot of work though.
A: What do you mean? You don’t like it?
B: Well, not that I don’t like it per se, just that I thought it’d be different, I guess.
B: Yeah, different. Not the same, you know. It should lack that sense of… sameness.
B: Why, did I say something wrong?
A: No… Well… I don’t know. You seemed all excited when I first told you about it. Said it was a revolution and all that. An end to all that oppressive… angles that we’ve been subjected to all these years.
B: Yes, I remember. I was really excited about it. Circles, who would’ve thought? I guess it is rather… beautiful.
A: Isn’t it? Oh, I knew you’d come around! Now, I know it’s not perfect. It wasn’t easy to make you know. Why, I didn’t even know how to start at first! I tried asking the Elders, but they waved me away and acted as if I had asked them something absurd, like… like… gravity or something! I even went to the library and took a peek at the Great Book, but it was all lines and gibberish to me. Nothing about perfect circles. Not even under the letter “C” or even “P”, nothing at all.
B: Oh… I didn’t know you put so much work into it. I’m sorry I was harsh before. It’s just that, I guess I never saw anything like it before so I was… scared I guess. We’re so used to angles around here you know.
A: I know. Boy, don’t I know it. Triangles, rectangles, right angles, acute angles, obtuse angles…I remember the lines very well. Why, I bet they’re drilling it into babies who aren’t even born yet! Imagine, them still in their mother’s wombs, singing that stupid song!
B: You mustn’t say things like that. Anyway, I take back what I said. I love it. It’s beautiful. Just like you. Hey…hey…
B: Has anyone ever told you that you’re acute?
A: Haha. Don’t start you’re cheesy lines on me…I’m serious now. I think we’re ready for a change. Yup, I’m ready for circles.
B: Aren’t you scared though?
A: Yes…No. I guess…I don’t know. I don’t know. But circles can’t be that bad right? I mean, they never end do they?
B: Yeah, they don’t. But I guess you can’t always ask for nice endings.
