INT. OFFICE – THE OREO EXPERIENCE’S DESK – DAY
WHITEPAL, 20s, giggles as she finishes a conversation with TOE.
TOE: Awww, he sounds fun!
WP: Yeah, he’s a cool guy.
TOE: And he’s a real basketball player? Like he’s famous?
WP: Yeah, people know who he is.
TOE: Cool! When are you seeing him again?
WP: He asked if he could see me after the game tonight. I told him I would, but only if he got a Triple Double.
TOE: …. Is that something on In N Out’s secret menu?
Still not totally sure what a triple double is, so if someone could enlighten me, that’d be baller! (That use of a basketball-derived slang word’s gotta count for something, right?)
And the above is so not the only time I’ve had to reach for an urban dictionary….
There was the time me and a WP disagreed over what a toaster was.
And the time we talked politics.
The night we dished about going to karaoke.
That embarrassing experience at an engagement party.
And something about hair products.
A triple double is a double digit number in one of 5 categories: points, rebounds, assists, steals. So it would be like 21 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists.
At least it’s not baseball. They count everything.
It’s 3 of 5 categories, and the fifth category is blocks. But other than than, what Brad said.
You’re right. I forgot to include blocks.
“WP: He asked if he could see me after the game tonight. I told him I would, but only if he got a Triple Double.
TOE: …. Is that something on In N Out’s secret menu?”
A nice Triple-Double DOES sound good right about now.
Ummm… do you know what a “Hat-Trick” is?
