LR is better than A

Harry was just about to knock on Kenny’s door when it opened and Janice danced out.

‘See’ya, LR,’ she cooed, ignoring Harry.

‘LR?’ Harry said.

‘Last resort.’

‘Are you and her, y’know ...?’

‘Kinda ... not really.  We just drink and chat.  It’s better than being A.’

‘A what?’

‘Alone.’

‘How?  She drinks your drink, cries on your shoulder, then flounces off to bed someone else.’

‘It’s not like that.’

‘She calls you LR!’

‘I call myself LR.’

‘That’s even worse.  Jesus, Kenny, join a dating agency, get a proper date.’

‘But what about Janice?’

‘She can be your LR!’
