Ariane: I’m washing all over. I wouldn’t want my odors to bother you.
Simon: They don’t, on the contrary. On the contrary. On the contrary.
Ariane: On the contrary?
Simon: Yes. Especially those sweet changing odors between the legs.
Ariane: I’m afraid at times I smell too strong.
Simon: On the contrary. When you perspire ever so slightly, that moistness…
Ariane: You like that? I sometimes feel I smell so strong that it even bothers me and I want to clasp my legs together.
Simon: No, those are the best moments. Your vagina is so beautiful when moist. Yesterday, as you slept on my bed your peignoir came undone. . .and I looked at you. And I…parted your legs ever so slightly and looked at your beautiful vagina. Do you mind?
Ariane: Not at all. Do as you like.
Simon: And I breathed of it, so warm and tender.
Ariane: Really?
Simon: Yes, my Ariane. If it weren’t for my allergy and all the pollen you bring in I almost wish you’d never wash.
Ariane: Never?
Simon: Not so often.

Pamela Drury: What happened? Well?
Pamela Dickson: I guess I had to find out.
Pamela Drury: Find out what?
Pamela Dickson: What would have happened if I had said no to Robert. Do you think I never wondered? What if I hadn’t had children? What it would feel like to have my own time, my own money, my own bed. What it would be like to sit down and read a whole book or a whole chapter or even a whole page without being interrupted. To remember who I am, not “Darling” or “Mummy” or “Dummy” or “Mum.” Just me. Pamela.

Jumpy: It says here the retail industry does 50% of its business between December 1st and December 25th. That’s half a year’s business in one month’s time. It seems to me, an intelligent country would legislate a second such gift giving holiday. Create, say, a Christmas 2, late May, early June, to further stimulate growth.
