Red: Hey, wait a minute! None of this ‘until death’ stuff.
Kathy: (outraged) What? You would let some yahoo prevent you from having pedicures?
Red: (exasperated) I really don’t think there’s any danger of that. In fact, I think you’re going to find that this subject isn’t controversial at all.
Kathy: (deflated) Oh…
Red: Yeah, so slow your roll, Chiquita!
Kathy: Damn! I’ve always wanted to gird my loins.
Red: So what makes you so passionate about pedicures anyway?
Kathy: Oh, come on. I don’t have to explain it to the many women, and a few men, out there who’ve experienced one. It’s pure heaven.
Red: I do dig those massaging chairs and the warm water.
Kathy: And the foot and leg rubs. Oh, Lordy. And there’s nothing like pretty feet. Whether you’re having your toes painted or just buffed up like the guy who’s regularly at my salon, your feet look so much better.
Red: That’s true. My favorite color is Rousing Red but you usually get that pinky-purple color. What’s it called.
Kathy: Purple Passion.
Red: Figures – you certainly are the passionate one.
Kathy: Yep, gets me in trouble sometimes.
Red: Don’t I know it! Hey, I’m down to ice cubes here (holding out her empty tumbler)
Kathy: Oh, sorry – let me make you a fresh Bloody Mary, oh royal one.
Red: (laughing) I like that title. I may just have to keep it. Royal Red. Sounds good.
Kathy: One more Bloody Mary, then it’s off to the salon for pedicures.
Red: Oh, goodie. Girl’s Day Out!
