Maddie, right? I didn't expect to see you here.
Well, I don't know why not, Joel is the best damn disabilities advocacy lawyer on the east coast, so of course I'm going to be in his waiting room. Oh, and by the way, Abigail's doing great. Um, do you have to go right back to the hospital?
Not unless I suddenly become fascinated by ingrown toenails, why?
All Joel needs me to do is sign some papers and that's not going to take more than ten minutes, tops. There's a great cafe on the corner, how about I buy you a coffee and a pastry for saving my kid and we can scare the normal people?
One of us, one of us!!
Oh, God, I've seen that movie....
Did you know Johnny Eck the Half a Man was also a magician and sharpshooter? It was part of his sideshow act.
This is going to be an interesting cup of coffee, isn't it?
A FEW HOURS LATER
That was fantastic.
Well, thank you. You're very passionate, of course, I appreciate any guy who I go to bed with who doesn't crack that joke about everybody being the same height lying down.
Yeah, I imagine that gets old real fast. You spin me right round, baby, right roooounnnnd--
Hee hee, I'm never going to hear THAT song the same way again!
