Brian and Andy were at their desks working away to the sounds of a new hip-hop album when Dave came by. He was wearing a long-sleeved polo tucked into his khakis, his typical weekend gear. "Hey guys, how's the new issue comin' along?"
Andy hurriedly turned the music down. "Oh hey, we didn't know you were here. We're right on schedule."
"Ahead of schedule," Brian said, stepping out of his cubicle. "We won't need to come in tomorrow."
"Great," said Dave. "Let's do lunch."
Brian and Andy glanced at each other. Dave had never invited them to lunch before. They tried to read in his face whether this invitation had positive or negative connotations, but to no avail.
"Yeah...absolutely," said Andy. "Um, I'm ready. Let's go."
