Ulf and Sven and the party
Sven is alone in the room. Enter Ulf.
Ulf: "Sven, why are you all alone in the kitchen. There's a party. You're missing all the fun."
Sven: "I'm not very good at parties, Ulf. I never know what to say to people. I can't do small talk."
Ulf: "You always have something to say to me. Why should strangers be any different?"
Sven: "But we have shared interests, Ulf. I can talk to you about Vikings and the TV programme Dr Who."
Ulf: "I'm sure lots of people would like to hear what you have to say about Vikings, Sven. And many people watch Dr Who. Be brave, go out there and talk to people. Olaf Olafson didn't conquer lands and make a great empire by hiding away in the kitchen at parties."
Sven: "Actually Ulf, you are wrong. Olaf Olafson was an incredibly shy man. When he wasn't leading the Viking hordes into battle he spent most of his spare time at home alone with his sword."
Ulf: "That is an interesting fact about Olaf Olafson, Sven. Who wouldn't be interested in what you have to say about that. No go into the party, say hello to a stranger and tell them about Olaf Olafson and his sword. Don't overthink it, you're just telling a tale."
Sven: "I will Ulf. I will do that."
Ulf: That's my boy, Sven. Drive the girls wild with your Viking talk."
