“Don’t you see, Simon? We don’t fit together.”

“What is that supposed to mean?”

“Exactly what I said. We don’t fit.”

“Fit? What do you mean fit? Like a suit? Like puzzle pieces? What the fuck? We’re people.”

“Simon. Stop This is what I’m talking about.”

“I’m serious, Dana. Just explain what you mean by fit.”

“I mean we don’t fit. We don’t click. We clash. Just like right now. Jesus! ”

“So we bump against each other. Then we give each other some space. You forgive me. I forgive you. That’s what people do in relationships. There’s a lot of jostling.”

“Stop with the metaphor. You’re insulting me”

“You’re the one who said we didn’t fit! How am I insulting you?”

“You’re mocking me.”

“I am not mocking you, Dana. I’m trying to say that people don’t always have to fit to be good together.”

He was so invested in being right, so determined to always win, that he couldn’t even consider what she was trying to say.
