"What we had was pretty great. The bread was fresh, and the dressing on my green lumps was delicious. But my favorites were the white flat discs. They were simply divine. Oh, wait, you're still talking about us?"

I've added a couple of "Pony Tail" songs to the jukebox in honor of Terry and Gina and Jenna and Vera and Lynn and Shannon. If only Dawn had a pony tail. Then maybe someone would love her. I've also added "Easy Peasy" in memory of Olive Taylor who almost died!

I know I am dying of curiosity. No, wait. That's boredom. We're not getting any younger here. Adam already had to wait eight years on the Charterstone waiting list to move into your building.

You're my guiding light... and my meal ticket. Now that I'm so focused on us, I can't do anything else, including work. You won't mind supporting me, Terry, because I'm focused on us!

I really don't know why I'm convinced Adam is a Super Villain. There certainly doesn't seem to be anything creepy or nefarious about him. I mean, it's totally normal for an inky black shadow to climb out of a man's bright white shirt and engulf his face in total darkness.

That's super villain talk, Adam. How many people have you already killed with your Death Ray for the "Greater Good?"

Even though Adam's list of disabilities continues to grow -- gimpy leg, glass eye, swollen hand (or shrunken hand -- you decide) -- he still manages to perch himself on the extreme edge of Park Bench with great dexterity.

Karen Moy employs many literary devices to tell her marvelous stories: Action, in-action, and today's perfect execution of anti-action. Very few authors dare to attempt anti-action because using it improperly can suck the reader's brain into an intercranial black hole. So it requires a license. But used properly, it completely negates all previous action in the story.

There are times when the use of this dangerous technique is important. For instance, when the writer wants to erase all previous character development, or blandify the character. It is the author's do-over and always keeps the reader guessing. I can't recommend the use of anti-action because it has the potential to kill, but I am sure most of us survived today's excellent usage.

"So we were both hurt working in the Secret Service. You were hurt by your perceived emotions, and your complete and utter dependence on my attention and presence in your life. And I was hurt by... well, an actual bullet. So that's another thing we have in common."
