Chapter 19

It's still the first day. Susan Ellen asked me to organize all of her bookmarks in her Safari browser into these categories:

Colon Cleanse
Liver Cleanse and Toxins
Gallbladder Cleanse
Adopting Asian Babies
Body Wraps
John Cusack

"Hm…." I thought. "What can I learn about Susan Ellen that involves all of these bookmarks?"

She obviously wants to adopt drunk and deaf Asian babies to go shopping with and later eat them and digest them properly. Oh, and she must really like Bullets Over Broadway.

Before I knew it, I realized that Susan Ellen was sitting near me on the couch talking to me and not to Daisy Ellen on her cellphone.

"I work a lot. Like, I'm constantly working. I have so much stuff going on. Where do you live?"

"In the Silver Lake/ Los Feliz area."



"I'm sorry. I'm deaf. I need to tell everyone this. I'm deaf in one ear. So I have a hard time hearing..."

(I think most people who are deaf have a hard time hearing.)

"Oh, ok."

"So, where do you live? I forgot. Oh, and I forgot to tell you, I lost my short-term memory. So I forget things quickly."

"I don't think you forgot; I just think you didn't hear-"

One of her puppies jumped up onto her lap.

"Who's my little baby?"

She suddenly forgot she was talking to me.
