  • Nope!
  • Not here.
  • NOPE.
  • Put that down. That’s for show. It’s not even paid off yet.
  • Tar and chip. Best of both worlds.
  • Watch your step.
  • No, not that hard. It’s just a saying.
  • Shoes! Man, c’mon, Donnie.
  • This already feels like it was a bad idea.
  • There’s a sign?
  • Watercolors was all she left!
  • Oh, I dunno, you’re barely literate so why does it even matter?
  • Sorry, just…she took the last of her things this morning and…
  • Including the Vitamix.
  • I know. It makes hot chocolate. I know.
  • Fuck, Donnie, I know! OK?!
  • …no…just Formica.
  • Over here there was supposed to be…
  • It doesn’t matter.
  • OK, it was supposed to be a nook. I didn’t even know what a nook was at the time.
  • Er, I can make a pretty good guess. This is one after all.
  • I know you can’t define a word by using a word, Donnie, that’s not what I’m doing!
  • I told her red means angry, but—
  • Right, I know. So we settled on yellow.
  • You’re sickly, Donnie!
  • Fine, let’s just go to a different room.
  • Early ’70s.
  • That was my grandma’s.
  • Yeah, actually…we sold it. She never thought it worked. Turns out it wasn’t worth much.
  • I think I bought gas.
  • That’s called trompe-l’œil, and she let Shari do it. I wasn’t around, which is how I’m guessing Shari so easily convinced her.
  • Heh. White.
  • A trellis I suppose? I’m just going to paint over it.
  • Yes with that same yellow, Donnie. I happen to like it.
  • No! it’s not like that.
  • Nope.
  • Probably…100 bucks?
  • I really have no idea.
  • No.
  • …no, through here.
  • This is where I sit.
  • No.
  • No more.
