Past Imperfect – #490


Jeanne: “I can’t believe what is going on over there.”

Michael: “And I can’t believe the someone was actually paid to make your hair look like that.”

Jeanne: “Wait, what? Do you understand the button you just pushed?”

Michael: “Um… maybe not. I didn’t realize that I had pushed anything.”

Jeanne: “Oh, please. You just dismissed my appearance with the ease of throwing away a gum wrapper.”

Michael: “I’m not chewing any gum. Or following whatever path you’re on. Is this the point where I should accept the fact that we might not be hitting it off?”

Jeanne: “Really? You’re going to go there? Claiming ignorance like men have always done since you crawled out of the sea, even though we were the ones who cleared the beach so you could get your asses out of the water?”

Michael: “Wow. Okay, I clearly read a different script than you did. I thought this scene was all about how we meet cute and then we fall in love whilst an Alfred Newman score plays in the background.”

Jeanne: “Alfred can bite it. And you can, too. If you really can’t understand your flippancy, let me break it down for you. I’m sporting this hairdo because some man at the studio decided I should sport it. Women have always had to conform to the latest whims of the men who have the power. All a man has to do is show up and assume his mere ownership of a certain appendage grants him eternal rights to say and act as he pleases.”

Michael: “I fail to see how my stellar appendage should be part of this conversation.”

Jeanne: “And I fail to see how my hair should be part of this conversation. Why would you think it was okay to say something like that?”

Michael: “You see, Jeanne, this is where men get confused. Why shouldn’t we be able to speak our minds?”

Jeanne: “Because those minds shouldn’t be speaking if they don’t have anything decent to say. That’s the whole basis of the problem. Some men have so little regard for women that they can’t even absorb the concept that what they do and say is insulting.”

Michael: “I think you’re making a really big deal out of a bad hairstyle.”

Jeanne: “It’s not just the hairstyle, you twit. It’s everything. Women in this country are considered second-class citizens. Hell, everybody in this country is considered a second-class citizen by the overwhelmingly white, male and usually rich blowhards who are clinging to power, although there are a lot of poor blowhards out there who don’t understand they are being crushed by the very oligarchy they support.”

Waiter, wandering up with some degree of trepidation but hoping that he can finesse things so he still ends up with a decent tip: “So sorry to intrude, but some of the patrons in the cheaper seats are wondering why Madame is so urgently insistent and is using really big words that they don’t understand.”

Michael: “I was wondering the same.”

Jeanne: “Let me break it down for you. I’ve been watching the TV coverage of the Women’s March and it’s very clear that millions of people attended the marches and roughly two people attended the inauguration of Princess Tiny Hands, once you rule out all the people who were paid to show up at the ceremony even though they can’t even read the signs they were handed to carry.”

Michael: “You can’t actually prove anything that you just said.”

Jeanne: “And that will be the legacy of the Trump Administration.”

  1. Suddenly ‘Bort, klattu borada nikto’ makes a lot more sense. Thank (insert the name of your favorite imaginary deity) that Gort was male. Conversations were much shorter, and less accusatory. 😉 😯

  2. This is perfect. All of what’s his names appendages are tiny. Did you read any of his speech before the CIA. He insulted them and self aggrandized the entire time. So full of himself, and we’re all going to pay for it.

    • He’s just nauseating, with every word that comes out of his mouth. And it was even worse that so many people in that audience were CHEERING for him, not just politely clapping. Except for that small section with the highest-ranking CIA officials. They were very quiet, as if they realize what is happening and where we might be heading…

      • We are all neck deep in his awful. And i think those who voted for him are oblivious, just like they were when they cast their votes. Some don’t care. Which is worse?
