T (charging up the path): Hi!
R: Hi! How are you?
T: Happy even though I'm going to the dentist!
R: Even the day after Super Tuesday, I couldn't be happier.
T: Yes, as long as it looks like this! (turning toward the sun-dappled creek, smiling)
R: Indeed. Good luck at the dentist!
T heads uphill, R down, both happy and they know it.
