College-aged guy talking to college-aged girl on town hall steps while sharing a of Cheese Puffs:
She was playing it off, like, I was mad drunk, that's why I was gassing it, and I'm like, That's bullshit.

No takers yet, Lance? Methinks that few of your regulars are young enough to 'get' it:) (Including me; although I do remember someone posting somewhere that the "..I'm like..." is actually a quotation mark; which made sense.)

She rather ingenuously suggested that she was only gassing it because she was highly inebriated. I told her that I was dubious.
Not sure about "gassing". First things that come to mind are "idly chatting" or possibly "failing". Neither seems to be quite right in context, though.

'She was pretending that she was really drunk at the time, and that's why she was exaggerating it, and I wasn't buying it.' I'm not certain who the second "I" refers to, though. Either way, he's claiming she said something that she's tried to disavow and he doesn't buy it. Was it harsh words about him, or some nasty rumor about a mutual acquaintance? Was it a come-on? A hookup that almost happened but didn't, or one that did, but in either case, meant much more to him? Or she made a pass, it wasn't fully reciprocated, and now it embarrasses her? What was his tone? Plenty of fiction you can write for this one, Lance...
