Who: Dag and Tibby
What: Breakfast

Dag saw the girl sitting at a table eating breakfast and immediately recognized her as Lena's friend. He grabbed a muffin and took a seat across from her.
He wanted to sound cool so he tried to remember how the kids talk. "Hey," he said, "What's up?"

"Not a whole lot," Tibby said, spreading butter on her bagel. "Just reflecting on my bizarre imprisonment."

She took a bite of her bagel and chewed on it thoughtfully.

"So Lena tells me you're twenty-eight," she said.

Dag furrowed his eyebrows, embarrassed.

"Yeah," he said. "Lena's...very mature. So, you know. She's probably too mature for teenage boys."

Tibby nodded.

"That's true," she said. "I guess it's not that big a deal. What's a decade? So, what bands do yo like? Answer carefully. I'm prepared to judge."

Dag narrowed his eyes. "Hey, I stopped letting teenage girls judge me as soon as I got out of high school."

He took a bite of his muffin. "So, keeping in mind that I'm not at all trying to impress you, I like Jawbreaker and Rites of Spring and The Promise Ring. What do you like?"

Tibby smiled approvingly, both at his musical taste and his reaction to her being a bitch.

"Nice. Very old school. I went through a phase about a year ago where I just listened to Kiss the Bottle over and over and over again. I really like The Misfits and Modest Mouse and Ween. And this band called The Dead Hensons. They do punk covers of songs from the Muppet Show."

Dag nodded, but then furrowed his eyebrows. She was obviously just calling them old school to rub it in that Dag was old. He kept up with current music. "That's cool," he said. "But those bands aren't old school. I mean, maybe Rites of Spring..."

Tibby raised an eyebrow.

"I guess old school is in the eye of the beholder. But, I mean, I was in preschool when The Promise Ring and Jawbreaker were in their heyday, so for me, yeah. Definitely old school."

Dag raised an eyebrow. "I think you're confused," he said. "Blake Schwarzenback was in middle school when you were in preschool. And I just brought the new Jawbreaker album about a month before I came here."

Tibby frowned.

"New album? They broke up in, like, '96, dude. Are we talking about different Jawbreakers or something? Because I thought there was just the one."

Dag's eyes widened.

"Tibby," he said, "when I left Palm Springs and came here, it was 1991."

"Holy shit," Tibby said. She stared at him in disbelief for awhile. Finally, she added, "Lena and I just came from 2004."

Dag's eyes widened. "Wow," he said.

"But...if Lena's 18 in 2004, that would mean that...where I'm from, she's five."

"Man..." Tibby said. "Wow. You're, what... forty-one in our time? Did you and Lena date all this time and never realize that?"

Tibby's mind was thoroughly blown.

"I guess years really never came up," Dag said. "Well...I guess we got pulled out of our own times because it was the only way we could be together."

Dag thought that was actually pretty beautiful.

"Wow," Tibby said, smiling a little. "That's so crazy."

Suddenly, her eyes narrowed. "You are not taking Lena to 1991. You know that, right?"
