Our recurring feature about those inexplicable manic fashion moments when all of a sudden we have to have a bizarre item of clothing. Immediately.
Cynthia is browsing fashion online.
One after another, each mainstream retailer has a cape blazer popping up in their New Arrivals section.
Cynthia is seized with longing.
Cynthia (shrieking): I want a cape blazer!
Marcy: A what?
Cynthia: A cape blazer! Look!
Marcy: Looks like Super Girl meets Working Girl (Melanie Griffith). It’s kind of weird.
Cynthia: I thought they were cool when I first saw one on crazy cool chick, Caroline, from Love & Loathing Los Angeles.
Cynthia: But, I never thought they would go mainstream.
Marcy looks closer.
Marcy: Yeah. It’s kind of weird. Where would you even wear it?
Cynthia (google-eyed): Everywhere.
Marcy rolls her eyes.
Cynthia: Everywhere I wear a blazer.
Marcy: Please. You can barely get out of your five year old ratty sweatshirts lately.
Cynthia (manically): I would if I had a cape blazer. I could do anything and be anything in a cape blazer! I could even fly in my cape blazer!
Marcy: You can’t fly in cape blazer. That’s an illusion.
Cynthia: That’s okay. Sometimes the illusion is all you need.
Marcy: Ah, I see. Fake it ’til you make it.
Cynthia (enthralled): I could be president of the United States if I had a cape blazer.
Marcy: I’m sure Hillary is panicking in her pantsuit.
Cynthia: Gasp. Oh, My. Gato. Maybe Hillary should wear a cape blazer!!
Marcy stalks off to hide Cynthia’s credit cards.
