amelia: it's pretty slow around here, mostly
a barely alive library, it is.
Chris: do you get sliding ladders?
amelia: but we have the best view in the world
Chris: but not sliding ladders.
amelia: two long stretching walls of picture windows from the second floor...
and we can see the whole valley to the east and the south
and all the frothy bathwater clouds.
there was a rainbow a few minutes ago
stabbed right in the middle of it all
Chris: but yo' ladders don't slide
amelia: we don't need ladders
we have stepstools.
Chris: don't try to rationalise your way out of this
