My olfactory sense bludgeoned by an overdose of aromatherapy, I hasten to add that these chicks were fugly. My jeweled cape, for the time being, covered some top-of-the-line sirloin. Choice beefsteak these ladies were ordering. The detached cuffs, de riguer in most circles, weren't being taken for granted.

Simple black cufflinks? No. Studded onyx? Check.

I retain a modicum of professional distance, if you will. So we'll just call the fat one 'Marie,' who found some quality humor in waving a John Adams in my face. Two passes for the price of one bill, eh, Marie? How 'bout a kick to that Kentucky Derby grill of yours?

Fall tuition? Check. (2 credits worth.)

04/7/2004 Ferucio P. Chhretan (4): See, this I can get behind, if you dig my mean...
04/7/2004 Mr. Pony: John Adams?
04/7/2004 anonymous: $2 bill.
04/7/2004 Mr. Pony (4): Dude, I think that's Jefferson. Funny regardless. This guy's attitude is more complicated than it looks.
04/7/2004 anonymous: Crap, you're right.
04/7/2004 anonymous: Let's just act like this guy is a little uninformed.
04/7/2004 Benny Maniacs: Fugly and aromatherapy in the same sentence is great, but I was a little lost by the closer. I didn't get the situation the first time around, so the clarity thing was an issue. Here's my take:
He's a stripper or prostitute.
He's calling his dick sirloin.
He's calling one of his clients horse-faced.
04/7/2004 Benny Maniacs (4): Oh all right then.
04/7/2004 anonymous: He's a stripper, his body is 'sirloin,' and he's trying to earn money for college. So basically, yes.
04/7/2004 John Slocum (3): Why the different tenses?
04/7/2004 anonymous: This guy's no scribe. He's just trying to make a living. Give him a break, okay? Or a single.
04/7/2004 John Slocum: I'm really (genuinely) curious why you changed between past and present? Is it to show that this guy is no scribe? It made it a bit confusing in the first pass and detracted for me, but I'm open to there having been an artful reason for doing it.
04/7/2004 anonymous: I think it adds some immediacy. The first paragraph provides background. The second brings us into the action, if you will.
04/8/2004 Mr. Pony: Hey, Cabot--Sort of off topic, but how did you find this site? Acme Shorts, I mean.
04/10/2004 Cabot: Long story...
