Not.. no, not really. I mean.. it’s kind of a.. I don’t know.. I just need money. They’re, uhm.. well, about a year and six months I think? In size, that is.. they’re kind of talking, too..
If you happen to know where.. I can find.. bigger cribs for them. I don’t know, Spence.. this is hard.
But.. cribs.. uh- okay, don’t- it’ll be okay. D’you think your, like, brother could run around and collect cash or somethin’ on Halloween? Or I mean.. even Levi’s still around, right? Maybe you could.. hint.. that.. your kids need their dad..?
Zinnia. You heard Zinnia.
..You.. already had- wha- when.. did you..?
I’ll have to try that. Earlier I let a mouse loose in a sorority’s room. Thanks, but if you ever call me twerp again I will shave your eyebrows off in your sleep, got it?
[He laughs with his shoulders.] Nice. Whoa- yikes.. okay, okay. Got it.
I won’t say anything. That’s cool of you to help her out. Does she um…know? About the house I mean?
Will do. Thanks a lot, Spencer. We’ll have to toke sometime.
Thanks, man. I’ve known her since I was in diapers, so it’s not really a problem. Nah.. she doesn’t. But she doesn’t need to, if you catch my drift. The less she knows, the better, y’know? Yeah, ‘course. Hit me up after you’re done socializing. I’ll be around. Catch you later, Kale.
It’s just figuring out what number the letter stands for.. The basic stuff is easy.
I guess I was just never good at math. All the letters and numbers just started to look the same after middle school. Nothing ever made sense to me.
You sound like you know what it’s about, though. Why don’t you become a teacher?
It’s-.. I, uh.. wedding.. it’s my wedding ring, I don’t even know if it’s worth anything.. seeing as how things turned out.. but.. it’d be nice if.. I could get some cash to buy the twins new beds. They’re too big for their cribs.. I moved my mattress to the floor and they’ve been sleeping on it with me, when I can sleep, that is..
Your..? You.. don’t wanna keep that? For.. memory.. reasons? Mattress? Wha- how big are they now? Is.. uh- what.. is there anything I can do to.. help?
..oh, uh… I wanted to ask you.. if you knew anyone who wanted to buy a ring..? Or.. anyone who could sell it for me, so I can buy some things for the twins..
A ring? Are you low on cash or..?
I could.. ask around.. whose ring is it?
Thanks.. uhm, what about.. you? I’m assuming you’re spending the whole day with Katie..
It’s no problem, Sammy. I’m always here. I- yeah. Halloween’s just kinda.. candy and pranks to me.. y’know? But since it’s the only time she can actually go anywhere, I thought I’d focus on her and what she’d wanna do.
I have a few plans..
..do you think you’d be able to watch the twins for maybe an hour on Halloween? You and Katie?
You do? That’s.. cool. Uh, yeah. Of course.
I haven’t talked to her about Halloween yet. But it’s only an hour, I’m sure she’d be okay with it.
Don’t…it’s okay. Baby…really.
I would love to order a pizza. We can take it outside and listen to some music. You want to do that?
[He caresses her hand slightly with his thumb.] Yeah, that sounds nice. It’s.. kinda late, but.. there has to be some kinda 24-hour delivery thing around here. I’ll go find.. a phone book, okay?
