Cynthia: Any video?

Marcy: YOU ARE MISSING MY POINT!
Cynthia: Don’t yell. So what’s your point.
Marcy (yelling): LOOK AT THAT PICTURE!

SHE’S CAT CRAZY INSANE! MORE INSANE THAN YOU! IT’S A MIRACLE!
Cynthia (excitedly): That’s what you think. Look what I have.

Cynthia (gleefully): Uh huh, that’s right. A picture of me dressed as a cat and wearing ballet slippers. Hmmm… they’re not pointe shoes, though.
