Today I got onto the bus.
A friend of mine called John was sitting in the first row.
He waved vigorously.
He's more of an acquaintance than a friend.
John is ugly.
He gestured for me to sit next to him.
But then I looked further down the bus and saw Jess.
She waved vigorously.
I dated Jess a few years ago.
Jess is pretty.
She gestured for me to sit next to her.
I wanted to sit next to Jess.
But John had already gestured for me to sit next to him.
For a couple of seconds, I kept looking between John and Jess.
John noticed this and looked around.
John saw Jess.
Jess saw John.
They both waved vigorously at one another.
John went and sat with Jess.
Turns out they know each other too.
I sat alone.
