Characters: organizer, me, bouncy girl

I was driving by a place that was something like a YWCA, but it had been done up with decorations for some kind of party/fundraiser. So I stopped the car and wandered inside to look at it. They were selling tickets for the event, which was on the 14th.
Note I somehow knew this to be a few days away.
One of the organizers greeted me warmly.
organizer: "Hi there! Welcome!"
me: "Oh, thanks!"
organizer: "We're curious...how did you hear about our event."
me: "I was passing by, and the decorations outside drew me in to check it out."
organizer: "Oh? Really? Glad you like them, but it's really nothing special yet."
me: "Well I really like all the ferns you have. The stage lights really accent them..."
Though I was enjoying showing the organizer the things I liked about their decorations, it was about time to leave. So I returned to my car. A few people followed me out and continued chatting.
The car reminding me a bit of the car the Beverly Hillbillies moved in:
...because it had no roof, and was stacked with furniture.
Instead of driving the car off, I laid down on a bed that was on the car. A real-life acquaintance bounded in and laid down next to me, and I gave her a quick pat on the back hello. Another woman in the car looked at us furiously. She said something I could not hear to the bouncy girl, and took off.
me: "What did she ask you?"
bouncy girl: "She asked if you and I were dating."
me: "How did you respond?"
bouncy girl: "I said yes."
me: "Oh really?! Since when!?"
bouncy girl: "Since I decided we were, yesterday."
Note Incidentally, that is precisely the kind of thing this acquaintance would do.
me: "Well you shouldn't have said that. I think she thought I was out on a date with her right now, so she'll be mad at me."
bouncy girl: "No, she's not mad at you. She just has issues with her body compared to mine."

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
