00:00 (buzz)

00:03 (downtempo music)

00:04 – Mmmm, finally.

00:06 A moment alone, a chance to be by myself.

00:09 How’s that tweet doing? – Rekha?

00:13 – Kelsey, oh my, hey guys!

00:15 – How are you?

00:16 – I’m good.

00:17 (chuckles)

00:18 – Are you alone, you wanna come and join us?

00:19 – Oh no, I’m meeting someone.

00:20 – Oh, okay.

00:22 – Not alone.

00:23 Oh fuck, why did I do that?

00:25 I’m not meeting anyone!

00:27 They’re gonna think I’m [simple_tooltip content=’stand someone up: to not come to meet someone who you have arranged to meet, especially someone who you are having or starting a sexual or romantic relationship with 예) Did she stand you up?’]being stood up. [/simple_tooltip]

00:28 – Hi there ma’am, how are you?

00:30 – Hi, I’m not alone!

00:32 – Oh okay, well can I get you another menu for when your friend arrives?

00:35 – Yes, he will need a menu to order his dinner.

00:38 – Okay.

00:40 – No, stop lying, you idiot!

00:42 I shouldn’t be embarrassed about eating alone,

00:44 it’s a regular thing to do!

00:46 – Here you are.

00:49 – Actually, my friend will no longer be joining me,

00:52 there was an emergency, so.

00:53 – Oh I’m so sorry, so it’ll just be you then.

00:59 – No, I won’t be alone actually,

01:01 I called a different friend in the meantime,

01:03 he’s very famous, so he will be joining me

01:05 for dinner at this restaurant, so just [simple_tooltip content=’snag: to get or catch something by acting quickly 예1) They had have gone bust if they had not snagged that contract from their rivals. 예2) It was a good hit, but 이승엽 snagged it for the final out of the inning.’]snag[/simple_tooltip] this back.

01:08 – Can I get you anything while you wait?

01:10 – We will take a bottle of nice wine,

01:14 to share.

01:14 – Sure.

01:16 – Oh gods, what have I done?

01:17 No, no!

01:18 This is their fault.

01:20 Why did they offer me a seat?

01:22 We’re casual [simple_tooltip content=’acquaintance: someone you know a little, who is not a close friend 예) He recognized Mr. Hunter as an old business acquaintance from his years in banking.’]acquaintances[/simple_tooltip] at best!

01:25 They want to eat a whole meal with me?

01:27 I like looking at my phone and not talking to anyone,

01:30 don’t they understand?

01:31 Being alone is okay!

01:34 They’re the crazy ones!

01:36 – Your wine.

01:38 – Great.

01:40 Yeah, my friend came in while no one was looking.

01:43 He [simple_tooltip content=’rush off: to hurry away from someplace. I am sorry, but I will have to rush off from this meeting before it is over. 예) Mary had to rush off before the party was over.’]rushed off[/simple_tooltip] to the bathroom,

01:44 it’s funny, he was stuck in traffic,

01:47 he had to go to the bathroom so badly,

01:50 so then he came, he just [simple_tooltip content=’zip: to move very quickly, or to make something move very quickly 예) The car zipped past at 100 mph.’]zipped[/simple_tooltip] by,

01:52 so nobody even saw him, he was really fast,

01:54 it’s Martin Sheen.

01:56 – Your friend is Martin Sheen?

01:57 – Yeah, oh.

01:59 He told me he’s very very hungry,

02:02 so if we could get two king crab dinners,

02:05 that would be great.

02:06 So it’s two, one for him, one for me.

02:07 – Certainly, right away.

02:08 – Great, thank you so much.

02:09 Could she tell I’m lying?

02:10 Can she tell I’m afraid of what people think?

02:12 Can she tell I’m afraid of fish?

02:14 – Here you are.

02:15 Two king crab dinners…

02:17 (forced laugh)

02:18 – Martin, you are so funny,

02:20 that’s such a good West Wing story,

02:22 what a good friend you are.

02:25 – Oh no, can he tell I’ve never tasted crab before?

02:27 Can he tell I don’t know how to drive?

02:29 Can he tell I have a cat, and the cat’s name is Jessica?

02:31 Can he tell I’m afraid of hermit crabs outside of their shell?

02:34 Does he know I don’t have an appendix?

02:37 – What, Rekha knows Martin Sheen?

02:38 (uptempo hip-hop)

02:45 – Hi, I’m Rekha from CollegeHumor,

02:50 and thank you so much for watching,
