The Supermodel in the Morning
Salem: Good morning, Lacrimosa!
Lacrimosa: Good morning... Salem, is it?
Salem: Yeah, you remembered! How did you sleep?
Lacrimosa: Not well, but as well as could be expected I suppose.
Salem: Hi little doggie, woggie. How did you sleep, hmmm?
Lacrimosa: She was very restless all night, poor baby. Unfamiliar environment and all.
Salem: She seems like a very sweet girl.
Lacrimosa: She seems to like you.
Salem: Weird, hu?
Lacrimosa: Hmm, why do YOU think so?
Salem: Well, you'd think a supermodel's dog would only like fashionable people, and I'm kind of not fashionable.
Lacrimosa: Indeed. Well, perhaps she wants to roll on you or something. Dogs are like that.
Salem: Yeah! I love dogs.
Salem: Oooh! Casual day for Aunt Syri! Rowr rowr!
Syrinx: (laugh) Thanks, Salem.
Lacrimosa: It is an ... interesting ensemble you've chosen there. But no one will see you with me, so I suppose it doesn't matter.
Syrinx: Are you ready to go?
Lacrimosa: Since the hospital has some stupid rule about no dogs, Salem, would you please keep an eye on Chardonnay for me while I'm gone?
Salem: Sure! Awww, come're baby doggie. Who's a widde biddle baby doggie? Awwww.
(Lacrimosa and Syrinx leave in silence)
Salem: Awww, do you want my coffee? Widde baby doggies can't have coffee. No they can't. Uh uh. Awww, you are so cute. Yes... who's a little cutie pie?
Hana: Oh My... what is that SMELL? Oh, it's that dog.
Salem: I think she smells nice.
Hana: Why would you drown your dog in perfume like that. It's like l'eau de pompous snob or something. Lacrimosa didn't take her with her?
Hana: Handbag isn't big enough, apparently.
Salem: Awww, that's just mean.
Hana: I'll come back when my kitchen isn't reeking of pretentious snob dog.
Salem: Aww, I think she smells nice. Well, maybe it's a little strong, but you get used to it. Hana....
Chardonnay: WOOF. Grrrrr.
Salem: Awww, ignore her, Chardonnay. She's just grumpy. You are a little cutie patootie. Yes you are. Well... maybe we will take you for a walk and air you out a little bit. Do you want to go for a walk? Of course you do! What doggie woggie baby pie doesn't want to go for walkies! Lets go for walkies!!!
