PAUL: Hi, Evelyn! Right on time to clean the cottage, I see!
EVELYN: Yup. How are you today, Paul? I see you’ve been calling that poor woman down under in Australia, again.
PAUL: I’m fine, just doing fine. How’d you know I just got off the phone with her?
EVELYN: The foam in the corners of your mouth is a dead give-away, Paul.
PAUL: I can’t help it, Evelyn, I get all excited when I tutor her in the science of life. I’m a born teacher, Evelyn. My heart belongs to the kids and to their future.
EVELYN: I believe you! I know for a fact you donated your heart years ago to the Palmer High Science Club. My daughter was vice-president when it exploded, spraying formaldehyde all over the science lab.
PAUL: Fascinating! They only told me about the Hazmat crew being hospitalized when they tried to dispose of it.
EVELYN: By the way, I saw two Jehovah’s Witnesses stumbling the other way when I came here today. They both looked pretty pale. You wouldn’t know anything about that would you?
PAUL: Only that they knocked about a quarter to noon. Naturally, I invited them in to lunch. Had plenty of my deep fried mac and cheese today, so I was able to share. You say they looked sick? Oh gods, I hope they didn’t infect me with anything.
EVELYN: Personal question, Paul.
EVELYN: Are you going to put on some clothes now, or do I need to wrap my vacuum’s cord around your neck and jerk it hard, like last month?
