A is a regular person.
B doesn’t know the number 3 exists.
A: Cool! I’ll come pick you up at 3 o’clock and we’ll head to the game.
B: You’ll pick me up at what o’clock?
B: I don’t know what you’re saying.
A: (sighs) Fine. Forget it. I’ll pick you up at 2:30.
A: Two thir–hang on, are you messing with me?
B: Not at all.
A: Okay. How about tomorrow, 2:23, post meridian? Is that specific enough for you?
B: That works. I’ll see you tomorrow at 2:20. Looking forward to it.
A: Fine. You’ll be waiting an extra three minutes, but I guess that’s doable. (ponders) Hey, I got a math question for you.
B: Okay. I love math. What is it?
A: What’s 8 times 3?
B: 8 times what?
A: How about this: What’s 8 plus 8 plus 8?
B: 24. Give me something harder next time.
A: (grinning evilly) What’s 3 times 3?
B: Sorry, I only know how to do math with English numbers.
A: How ’bout this: Pretend that I’m a cop and I just pulled you over for suspected drunk driving.
B: But I don’t drink.
A: That’s why I specified suspected drunk driving. Anyway, the cop doesn’t know that you don’t drink, so they ask you to perform a field sobriety test.
B: Which I will easily pass, because I don’t–
A: Drink! We know. (wipes face with hands) Okay. Your first field sobriety test–which you will pass–is to stand on one foot, and count to ten.
B: That sounds simple for a completely sober person to pull off.
A: Couldn’t agree more. So, um…do it now.
B: Now? But–
A: I know you’re not in a car, and I know that you don’t drink. Just. Do. It.
B: Okay. (raises right foot) 1,2,4,4,5,6,7,8–
A: Hang on!
B: But I didn’t get to 10!
A: (collapses in a heap on the ground) …that’s because you passed. You’re free to go.
