Stephen comes over because Pete is in Haiti getting the kids there to brush their teeth. Pete isn’t a dentist, he’s an interior designer, but he cares about oral hygiene and humanitarian work. I wonder if that was on his dating prof. Stephen brings fancy sandwiches (one roast beef and one salmon salad and we split both). 

“How are you, my darling?” Stephen takes off the top piece of bun. 

“I’m doing very well, thank you, Stephen, and mostly that’s because it’s so nice to see you.” He knows I’m a dirty little liar but he plays the game. 

“Oh goodie. I hoped this might bring you a bit of cheer.” He gobbles some sandwich.
