L: Dan hasn’t been to see Ma in almost a month.
V: Yeah, and?
L: That woman gave us her life.
V: I was there last weekend. Lizzy painted her nails.
L: I saw.
V: You didn’t like the turquoise?
L: She didn’t like the turquoise.
V: How do you know? She barely speaks.
L: I could tell. She’s not a vegetable. She understands. She still has taste and opinions.
V: Sorry, Lawrence. I’ll make Lizzie fucking ask next time, okay?
They keep sparring.
L: What’s up with you?
V: It’s been a shit day.
V: Same old.
V: What do you mean?
L: There’s something else. That wrinkle in your forehead is showing.
V: That wrinkle collects the sweat.
