The Seizure-Inducing Ambulance

Justina: Ugh. Why are its lights on? No one is in it. I’m going to have a seizure.
Justin: Interesting. Very smart.
Justina: What is smart about this? Are you going to say something dumb like “at least we’re in front of a hospital”?
Justin: Well. That depends on how you define “like” here.
Justina: I knew it.
Justin: To be sure, that they’re going to cause seizures right in front of the ER is well-played. But I’m attacking this from a different angle.
Justina: It’s going to be a dumb angle.
Justin: When you’re lying on the ground having a seizure…
Justina: Why am I having the seizure!?
Justin: You said it! Not me.
Justina: It was a joke!
Justin: Anyway… They won’t have to put you in the ambulance. You see? You’re right at the door. They can just carry you in.
Justina: …
Justin: That frees up the ambulance to cause more innocent passers-by on their evening walks to have seizures while you’re being attended to.
Justina: You did attack it from another angle. Sure enough, it was dumber than I thought.
Justin: Thanks.
