Mary Jane was unhappy.
"I just don't know guys. I been lookin for love but it's been a bummer. Real downer."
"Oh poor baby! I know maybe it's hard right now but you'll find somebody, I just know it."
"I've just been moping around with the blahs, ya know? No motivation."
SheLa was ever pragmatic. "Just wash it off baby, take it on back downtown." was her rather rude suggestion.
Karen offered her helpful comment. "Baby girl if you'd stop hanging with the dogs you might have better luck."
"You need a warm fuzzy guy with a big heart. They're out there you know, I can assure you of that. But you throw bones to the dogs."
Suzy jumped up ready to call Karen out.
"Well damn Karen! That was pretty rude if I do say so! I mean really? Dogs? Her boyfriends haven't exactly been dogs, and you know it."
Karen replied to the parry with a nasty thrust.
"Yeah, right Suzy. I met some them boys and they minded me more of purebred hyena than they did of dog. Yeah, damned if they didn't."
Mary Jane had begun sobbing quietly. "Damn you Karen!" she hissed.
Later, after the call, the cat addressed her.
"So let me get this straight? You let that poor broken hearted girl think you had a warm fuzzy boyfriend when the best you can do for meaningful companionship is me? A rescue cat? And we both know that even I would leave if it weren't for the cat chow."
"You are going to burn in Hell Karen. You know that right? You are seriously damaged goods child."
Karen just laughed.
