Marcy: That’s a somewhat sappy and pretentious meme you got there, Cindy.
Cynthia: Really? I thought it was humorous. And the pic is so cool! Striking, in fact.
Marcy: It reeks of earnestness and new-agey spiritual condescension. Like people with babies who say ridiculous things to you like “you don’t know what love is until you have a child.”
Cynthia: Yeah. That was kind of a mean thing to say to me. So why can’t I be earnest back and lecture about animal rescue?
Marcy: Because it’s… (Marcy thinks for a moment) … derivative!
Cynthia: Derivative of what?
Marcy: Derivative of being an asshole.
Cynthia: What!? I don’t think you know what derivative means.
Marcy: Oh, I KNOW what it means. You’re the one who has lost her mind.
Cynthia: I know! That is what the meme is about!
Marcy swishes her tail around and glowers.
Cynthia: Why on earth are you being so contrary?
Marcy: I don’t know. I guess I liked talking about shoes better. Tomorrow I am taking over and talking about shoes.
Cynthia (impishly): You know what shoes have, Marcy? Shoes have soles! Bwahhhaaahaahaa haa haa!
Marcy: Sigh… Living with a mindless soul is not as easy as living with a soulless mind.
Cynthia: But seriously, do you think anyone will get my Duran Duran reference?
Marcy: Double sigh…
