Cynthia blissfully walks in the front door only to be confronted by a panicked Marcy.
Marcy: Where have you been?! You’ve been gone for hours. Possibly days. Possibly weeks. I don’t know. I lost track.
Cynthia: Ummm… I was gone for 3 hours.
Marcy: It’s 2 hours and 23 minutes to Friskies Time. What if you were late? What would I do? What would become of me?!
Cynthia: Freddy and I went to check out Rose Avenue in Venice. It got a makeover.
That’s the famous dancing clown at the corner of Rose and Main. Rose Ave has changed A LOT since I lived there 17 years ago. It used to be dangerous and rundown. Now look!

Cynthia: Colorful walls!

Cynthia: Cool murals!

Cynthia: Trendy new restaurants. This quote made me think of you, Marcy.

Cynthia: But, beloved clothing store DNA is still there! Yay! They’ve always had a great selection of jeans. Dittos and Level 99 were on sale for $30. Score!

Cynthia: And even with its hip new look, Rose Ave still remains “beachy” and “bohemian.”

Cynthia: They love their dogs on Rose Ave. Venice’s nickname is Dogtown. Sorry Marcy.

Marcy: Hmmmpf. So basically you used Rose Ave as a photo op for your outfit.
Cynthia: Well… uh…
Marcy: That’s a lot of photos you posted of yourself there, Cindy. How many pictures did you make Freddy take?
Cynthia (vaguely): Oh… a few… you know…
Marcy: Hundreds, I bet.
Cynthia: Well, I’m still new at this, Marcy. And it’s oddly difficult to get a good picture.
Marcy: Uh hunh. I just can’t believe you would risk being late for Friskies O’clock to get a good vanity picture of yourself. I expected more from you, Cindy. I really did.
Cynthia: But look at this pic. I’m going to submit it to Effortless Anthropologie’s Reader Outfits this Sunday! This one is the best of the bunch!

Marcy: Yeah? There’s a shadow line going down your face.
Cynthia: Oh, gosh. You’re right. Hmm, I may have to vogue through Venice again.
Marcy: I have a better idea. Why don’t you frolic over to the Friskies cabinet and finally feed me already!
