Dylan has been looking for a job.
Natalie has been working with Dylan to help him find a job.
And now that Natalie has a lead on an offer inside of the company she works for, Dylan has found a job of his own… somewhere else…
It’s just a matter of time before Natalie says something she may regret to her close friend and fellow lover of soup, Dylan.
What do you get when you put a microphone in front of two Original Soupman Soup Club Members and best-friend-bloggers, Natalie and Dylan?
A declaration of their passion for the Original Soupman’s Soups?
A recipe for a warm, happy belly hugging your heart?
Or something else…
Int. Natalie’s Apartment – Afternoon
NATALIE: Let’s get right into it. How was your first day?
DYLAN: Wow. We are jumping right in the deep end. Okay. It was as good it possibly could be.
DYLAN: This is going to be a challenge. You can tell these people work hard and play hard.
NATALIE: That is a saying that people say…
DYLAN: What I mean by that is, it seems like everyone works there – and they work for long, long hours… But then they also hang out together all the time.
NATALIE: You should be able to make some new friends.
DYLAN: I guess so, yeah. I don’t know how I feel yet about being around the same people 24/7.
NATALIE: I’ll tell you now, I shall miss you.
DYLAN: Don’t be like that. The job is a commitment, but you’re still a priority.
NATALIE: Well don’t worry about little old me. I know that I’m the least of your obligations.
DYLAN: Um… I don’t think of you as an obligation…
NATALIE: That’s nice to hear.
DYLAN: What’s up? You seem a little off.
NATALIE: Do I?
DYLAN: That comment right there. Prime example.
NATALIE: It’s nothing.
DYLAN: Every person on the planet knows that when another person says that “it’s nothing,” they should take it at face value and ask no further questions.
NATALIE: Sounds like a plan.
DYLAN: Nat. What did I do wrong?
NATALIE: Like I said, it’s nothing. Nothing. Nothing at all!
DYLAN: Okay. If that’s your story…
NATALIE: There’s something.
DYLAN: I knew it!
NATALIE: You got this new job and I’m really happy for you. Cause you’ve had such a rough go with work over the last few months. And you’re super smart and have the potential to do anything that you want. But a few weeks ago, I got you an interview at my employer. You took the interview and they also offered you a job. But now you’re working somewhere else and it’s over and done with and it doesn’t seem to bother you at all.
DYLAN: That is… a lot to take in. Bother me?
NATALIE: Yes. I put my name on the line for you. My reputation. You didn’t even give it any thought. You just went and took a something somewhere else.
DYLAN: Are you worried that we won’t see each other? Cause we’re still pretty close. I’ll bring the soup if you bring the microwave.
NATALIE: It’s not that at all.
DYLAN: I guess I don’t understand.
NATALIE: I suppose I thought this would be the next evolution in our friendship.
NATALIE: We would hang out. We would work together. We would work hard together…
DYLAN: And we would play hard together. Nat. Seriously. This was nothing personal. A matter of ones and zeros. What I took? I took simply cause it had more zeros. Plain and simple.
NATALIE: You sure? I’m a little bit vulnerable right now. A little raw.
DYLAN: I swear. That’s all it was. I’m sorry.
NATALIE: You sure, sure?
DYLAN: I don’t apologize easily… I think when I say that I’m sorry, you’ll know I’m actually truly sorry.
NATALIE: This too shall pass. Thank you for the apology.
DYLAN: Folks, we’ll be back next week?
NATALIE: We will! But you know what won’t be back? The promotion that Soupman has on their memberships for the Soup Club.
DYLAN: That was a heck of a quick turn, Nat.
NATALIE: Yeah, it is. Through June 30th, you get 20% off every Original Soupman Soup Club Gold Membership or Higher.
DYLAN: Well done.
NATALIE: I’m Natalie.
DYLAN: And I’m Dylan.
