Overheard by the Dinky Station

Guy: You'll never believe what happened to me this weekend in the city.
Girl: What? What happened?
Guy: I was at this bar and I saw the girl who played Alex Mack on television was at the bar. So I walked up to her and struck up a conversation. Then, like, in midsentence, I pointed over her shoulder and yelled, "Omigod! Look!". And when she turned around, I spilled my drink on the floor and then ran behind her as she was turning around, and when she turned back around I was behind her and she was just looking at this puddle on the floor, and I said behind her back, "I know what I'm doing, Ray!", and she totally thought that the puddle on the floor was me, and that I had the powers she had on the show, probably.
