The two stars, whose brief relationship fizzled in December, arrived quietly together on Wednesday at Bound'ry, a restaurant near Swift's Nashville condo, and were led back to a table for two, according to another patron.
"Oh, no, you go."
"No, no, sorry, what were you going to say?"
"No, nothing I was just going to be like, 'how are you?'"
"Oh I was too. How are you?"
"Haha, I'm really good, things are really good, how are you, how are things with you?"
"Good. They're good. So, do you want to eat?"
"Oh I don't care and could go either way, obviously. I had a really late lunch but also you know people, they eat! Whennn it's dinnertime! Hahaha, mostly they do, I mean, I guess when people are sick or whatever, they'll skip it if, like ...?"
"I guess I'll probably get something."
"Me too, yeah, I was just thinking, 'actually, I will have something.' Because my late lunch was really small, and what is it, seven? Yeah, it wasn't even that late a lunch, it was like one, one thirty, depending, I didn't look at my watch a lot today, though, not that I usually do. I would say I look at my watch a normal amount."
"Yeah, me too. Hmm, what looks good."
"I don't know!?!?! What looks good to you?!!?"
"Ahh, I might go with the burger."
"Oh my god, that does look really good, I bet it's amazing."
"Oh, I mean, I don't know, no reason, don't most places make good burgers? Hahaha, I have no idea! I really don't know why I said that, because, yeah, I mean, when I think about it I have met a lot of people who're more particular about burgers than me, which makes sense, because people care about the things they care about, just not me! About burgers! I do care about other things, obviously! But back to burgers for a sec, I think the reason I said that I thought they'd be good here is just that I don't eat a lot of burgers — but that's not, like, because of weight concerns, I just ... forget? I forget they exist sometimes, I guess. I'm never like, 'burgers,' you know? But I'm remembering now, obviously! Aaand, yeah, I'm definitely going to have a burger."
"Awesome. Do you want anything to drink?"
"Yeah like six glasses of wine, just kidding! That was a joke, I wouldn't usually make that order. Wouldn't ever, I mean. Not 'usually' — never. I would never make that order."
"Haha, yeah, I got it. Jake, is everything OK?"
