Rene: Hey, look who’s here. It’s the company’s Golden boy.
Bruno: Very funny.
Rene: I’m not joking. First, you’re Recognized at the annual meeting for your work in the company, and then you get a Commendation from the city for your volunteer work. I’m Basking in your reflected glory.
Bruno: I didn’t ask for either Honor, as you well know. I’m not a Glory hound.
Rene: Yes, and that’s what makes it even more Galling. You don’t have to go seeking your glory; it comes to you.
Bruno: Knock it off! I like Praise as much as the next guy, but I’d rather not be in the Limelight.
Rene: I know. You’re Exceptional and you’re Modest about it. You’re the perfect guy. You leave us Mere mortals in the dust.
Bruno: I’m leaving. I know you love Giving me a hard time, but remember this: I Give as good as I get β and I have a Long memory!
