When Josephine finished dinner, she would take
her plate, hold it high, and her boyfriend, Jacob,
would shoot a hole in it.
â€œGood girl!â€ he would say and then make love to
her on the table and whisper in her ear,
â€œYouâ€™re in the clean plate club. And I love you.â€
This happened at dinner many times. When Jacob
made sausage, though, she wouldnâ€™t be able to
finish. He experimented with sausage fillings and
she couldnâ€™t eat it. She was pretty and smart. On
those sausage nights, theyâ€™d always order pizza
and then sneak the whole pizza into a movie
theater where they would eat it, watch the movie,
and make out.
They knew how to levitate, also.
â€œWe make a wonderful silhouette, Josephine.â€
