Customer 1: Where is the Underdog Café?
Carmen: You’re here.
Vanessa: I thought it was over there, that this side was Emporium Wines and that side was the Underdog Café.
Carmen: But isn’t it like the border between life and death, which doesn’t really exist?
Vanessa: Interesting! I’ve always thought of it as a Venn diagram.
Carmen: Oh, so there’s an overlap?
Vanessa: Right. You can exist within the border. But if you go far enough toward one side (or the other), you can exist wholly in one (or the other).
Customer 2: I don’t mean to interrupt this philosophical discussion, but can I get a muffin?
Carmen: Will it be traveling? To the café?
Vanessa: Crossing the border? Does it need a visa?
