Me: I have no idea if the bus stops near my house.
Cap: (groans) I told you to take the other one!
Tony: (slaps Cap) I swear to God, let me out of here or I’m gonna blow a hole in this skull!
Hawkeye: I love looking at the scenery. Shit, this is a really crappy place…..where are the birds?
Me: They went to Florida for the winter. Or maybe they just realized how much this place sucks too.
Natasha: Don’t worry Clint, your pigeon girls will find you sooner or later. Personally, that’s not a question I need answered.
Banner: I lived in Calcutta. This place is worse. I could “clean it up for you”…..
Me: Thanks Bruce. I don’t think even you could fix this shithole.
Cap: Why don’t you like it here. The people seem friendly enough.
Me: No one speaks English here Cap. Spanish, Spanish, Spanish…..
(The bus stops at my stop. I walk toward my apartment, and pass a man on the street. He comments something in Spanish)
Me: “I’m sorry, I don’t speak Spanish.” (ugh)
Man: “Oh, you don’t speak Spanish. I was just saying “Happy New Year.”
Me: “Oh thanks, you too.”
Tony: What’s wrong?
Me: I actually understood him in Spanish. I’ve got to move…
Cap: We’re home!!! Yippee!
Thor: This domicile does not suit you Catherine. You deserve much nicer accommodations. Gold and towers and monuments built to the sky….
Tony: Yeah, I have to agree. I have some room at my place..
Me: I hate cities Tony. This is just a smaller, crappier one than you live in.
Tony: (Gasps) How, how can you say such a thing? You were born in New York.
Me: I was born in Albany, New York. Not Manhattan. I am a suburban or country type of girl. I hate cities. Cold, hard, no grass, no air, all just huge buildings covering up the sky.
Tony: I don’t know you.….
Me: And I’m afraid of heights, so your tower—
Cap: You mean that big, ugly…….building?
Me: Yes Cap. Does it even have heat? All I saw were big open windows and doors you walk out of and nothing closed.
Tony: Yeah, but at least I don’t live in a dungeon.
Me: I don’t live in a dungeon, it’s home. For now anyway. I make the best of what I have…..You should try it.
Tony: I could build you a nicer dungeon. And I could add Jarvis so you’d never be lonely.
Me : (sniff) yeah, that sounds nice. But then I wouldn’t have you guys to keep me company.
Hawkeye: Awwww. That is just so sweet!
