Kathy: How is it possible that she even considers giving up her lists?
Red: Not everyone is obsessive about lists as you are.
Kathy: Well, obviously some people are or no one would relate to Kate’s obsessiveness.
Red: We all know someone like that – for instance, I know you and you are so completely OCD about lists.
Kathy: (puffing up) Who, me? I’m not obsessive.
Red: Really? Then why is there a list for the next book, what you have to do at work, what you plan to get done today, your New Years resolutions (posted on the refrigerator), what to buy at the grocery store….
Kathy: (cutting Red off) Okay, okay. Maybe I’m a little compulsive about it.
Red: You forget, I happen to know that you add things on to the list that you’ve already done – just so you can cross it off.
Kathy: (sheepishly) I didn’t know you noticed.
Red: Oh, I see everything. Remember.
Kathy: You forget that you wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for my list-making. I had a three-page Excel list of plot points and things about you to put into Red Mojo Mama.
Red: Oh, yeah, huh? (suddenly inspecting her Bloody Mary) Did I mention what a great Bloody Mary you make?
Kathy: Luckily, I had vodka on my grocery list today!
Red: Touché, my friend, touché
