“Hello, John.”

“Why hello Stella. Long time no talk.”

“Do you have a minute?”

“Sure. What’s up?”


“You know I hate to complain.”

“Uh. Okay.”

“But things have gotten out of hand.”

“Let me guess. Bailey and Lucy.”


“Not so loud. I think Lucy is lying around over there.”

“So what is the issue?”

“First of all, Bailey is a saint. I have nothing to say about her.”


“Let me tell you.”


“Here I am in your office. All I want to do is cross the floor.”

“Okay, go ahead.”



“See that?”

“I see you and Lucy.”

“I’ll show you again.”


“Did you see it?”


“She looked at me.”

“That’s it?”

“Isn’t that enough? You never look at a diva. Everyone knows that.”

“I’ll talk to her.”

“You are a mensch.”

“Lucy. About looking at Stella.”


“Boss. I love you but pfff TTT.”
