NYC Eagle, Thursday, 11pm

At a birthday party on the Eagle’s rooftop, I ran into a recent acquaintance.

Joe: Oh, hi. Nice to see you again, you’re looking good.

Guy: Thanks, I’ve just started on testosterone.

Joe: Oh, really? Are you taking the gel stuff or getting shots?

Guy: The shots.

Joe (shuddering): Yikes, do you have somebody giving them to you or do you do it yourself?

Guy: I do it myself, but it’s cool. I’m a masochist and I used to get into cutting myself, so I kind of enjoy it. It’s hot.

OK, then.
