Help me remember a radio story I heard on NPR

There was a story/performance I heard on some (probably NPR) radio show within the last 10 years. It was a man and a woman meeting at a party, and instead of saying things to each other they described what they would say to each other, kind of a meta-conversation.

It went sort of like
He: "Casual greeting"
She: "Disinterested response"
He: "Vague comment"
She: "Even less interested response"
He: "Slightly smutty joke"
She: "Declaration of offense combined with increasing interest"
He: "Statement of contrition"
and so on.
I don't think it was on This American Life or The Moth, but it's in the same neighborhood. I also think it wasn't a published story but something prepared for radio or a sketch comedy show.
