Karaoke is Fun

(Scene: Karaoke room-noisy)

M: I'll go out for a bit and buy some drinks.

W: What?

M: I said I'm going out to grab some drinks.

W: Wait, you want to go out with sexy chicks?

M: (didn't hear well) Yeah, I am. Want to come with me?

W: Of course not, dude! I have perfectly fine guys right here. I don't need chicks.

M: (misheard) Oh OK. You sure you don't want me to get you anything?

W: Please. I'm straight.

(leaves then gets back)

W: You bought drinks? Why didn't you ask me if I wanted anything?

M: I did! Twice! You said you didn't want anything.

W: But I thought you went out to look for chicks!

M: Chicks? Who said anything about chicks? It was DRINKS.

W: And all this time I thought you were having fun elsewhere! Ha ha.

M: How could I even score on chicks? Karaoke is my only love. Hey, give me the mic, my song's coming up!
