The Lout’s

Conversation between two friends.

“I can not get over it, I mean I thought that person was so cool and well, nice!” Jerri said.

“I know right! I mean talk about having everything and then throwing it all away. What kind of a lummox does that?” Kelsey asked.

“Lummox, that’s a good one Jerri! Your nice way of saying a complete and total dolt?” Jerri laughed.

“Well, if the shoe fits, right? Honestly though, it would take a true bumpkin to cause that marriage to fail, I just don’t get it.” Kelsey shook her head despondently.

“Don’t take it too personally Kelsey, celebrities get married and divorced all the time. They don’t live in the real world. It’s why they act out, use drugs and alcohol and basically misuse and abuse each other. I say they’re all a bunch of buffoon’s if you ask me.” Jerri said.

“I don’t think it’s pc to use buffoon’s anymore Jerri, you know? But I get your meaning though. To have that kind of talent…” Kelsey began.

Jerri interrupted, “… and to be born with those looks! Aye yi yi!”

“I know right! Complete idiocy!” Kelsey continued.

“I believe he’s a total lout to be honest!” Jerri admitted.

“Wait, what?” Kelsey couldn’t believe her ears. “I was talking about her, not him!”

“The Lout’s,” they said in unison before breaking down into peals of laughter.
