person 1: I was accepted to every school in the Ivy League, but didn't attend, as I have no need to childishly prove myself to the world. I attend El Generico State University, because it's just as good, if not better!

person 1: Well, I must be off! President Bush wants me to negotiate a truce between Israel and Hezbollah.

person 2 (out loud to no one in particular): Why do I talk to her?
