LuAnn sat down with her daughter, Victoria, to have a talk about the birds and the bees. The teenager did her level best to explain to her Mom that having babies is an important decision, that anyone considering the idea should know if they’re willing assume the responsibility and if they’re even still able to have them. Lulu wants to try to have a baby with Jacques, because she thinks it would make him happy. I have a feeling that might not be the whole story, but I’ll let her have her little fantasy. We all want things we can’t have. For instance, I sometimes want to be the Mother of the Dragons, like the one from “Game of Thrones”. The little creatures are very cute and come in handy when their Mom gets into a bit of trouble. All I have to do is find some dragon eggs, warm them up and the fire-breathing babies will hatch. The odds of this actually happening are about the same as what LuAnn sees for her future. There are just some eggs that should simply be left undisturbed.
Heather offered to help Sonja with her new business which has something to do with catering, toaster ovens and retro aprons. The Yummy Tummy queen is quite the hipster and likes to call phone people and call them names like baby-boo. She also likes saying “holla”. I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. She did mention that she is still studying Judaism, so maybe what she’s really trying to say is “challah”, but hasn’t quite mastered it yet. She’s not ready to give her baby-boo Ramona a holla, though. It looks like she doesn’t want her competition in the interruption contest to go on the girl’s weekend to London.
Since Aviva’s childhood injury, she has developed all sort of fears. She’s afraid of subways, because they’re enclosed and below ground. She doesn’t like planes or tall buildings because they’re above ground. She has a fear of giving her children permanent names. She’s afraid that women will steal her husband if he wears a wedding ring. The other ladies flipped that one on her, though. Now she’s developed a phobia that women will seduce him if he isn’t wearing a ring. She fixed that fear by buying a wedding band for him. Carole also held a face your fear of heights intervention for Aviva by inviting her and a couple of the other ladies for roof top cocktails. I’d say that the group therapy is working wonders for Aviva. A plane ride to England and some subway tokens and she may very well be on the road to recovery.
Ramona, Mario and Carole met for lunch and Carole turned on every bit of minx that she had in her brilliantly funny arsenal. She flirted with Mario incessantly, not so much for Mario’s sake, but simply to see if Ramona could be struck speechless. It wasn’t a total success, but Ramona did do a little starting and sputtering. It was harmless, funny and fun. If they’re not careful, these women could actually become friends. Neither of them is a fool and one is the yin to the other’s yang when it comes to styles of honesty – they’re somewhat the same, in different ways. Together they could become a force of nature.
Before I forget, I found a picture of the kind of dragon eggs I’m looking for. I probably won’t use them, much as I’d like to have the winged ones around. If I do happen to come across the real ones, I’m sending them to LuAnn. In just the right setting, they’d make some lovely pieces of jewelry. Bonne chance, Countess.
