Last night, I was following the Twitter feed of Raw Story Executive Editor Megan Carpentier. So? Well, it turns out Megan was sitting in a New York City restaurant when she tweeted this pithy nugget: 

"There is Schadenfreudic satisfaction in seeing a wealthy hipster couple argue about banal relationship sh*t while one is eating alone."

Carpentier then started a string of journalistic observations about the bad date unfolding just a few tables away, while I (and hundreds of others) hung on to her every character.

Thanks to NHPR's Web Editor Courtney Cania for playing the part of Megan in this brilliant recreation. /RL
