CHAPTER 74: Mitzi Has a Realization
Episode 17: Oh Mitzi Mitzi
It is March 17. Mitzi has put Randi to bed and is getting ready for the Leprechaun Club's after-hours party at the Daily Grind Coffee Shop. Lisa is staying over to babysit, but she has her terms: "I am only agreeing to do this on condition that you do something totally selfish and a bit reckless tonight. I suggest a little nookie."
"I'm going to work!"
"So what about afterwards? I'll be here all night. Call up that detective guy."
"I don't think so."
"So what's wrong with Columbo, pray tell."
"Well, he's nice, loyal and conscientious..."
"Oh, okay, I see the problem." "You do?" "Sure. You're not good enough for him.""I'm not...?"
"Wait, on second thought, erase that statement. I should have said, he's not bad enough for you." "Gosh, maybe you're right. I mean, the thought of always being treated well by a man seems so...boring."
"Perfection is a bitch. Some people just need a little mistreatment sometimes."
"Yes, I think I deserve that. And Jack was very good at it. I might even be kind of spoiled."
"Wow, it's all starting to fall into place now. Lisa, you are so insightful! You ought to be a psychiatrist. You're just totally...amazing.""Sometimes, but I have to put my pants on one leg at a time, like everyone else."
"It's nice to know you're still one of us."
