Pull it tighter Sue. Pull it tighter! I want a waist like Anna Held's.
If I pull it any tighter you're not going to be able to breathe.
Oh. Oh, that's alright, I don't need much breath anyway. As my late friend Matty used to say, "If a girl don't watch her figure, the men won't."
Matty? Wasn't that the man you were going to marry?
Yes, but he hung himself instead.
Oh Matty was such a card.
Well where's your new friend going to take you tonight?
To the Hauffman House for dinner, then to Tony Pastor's for the vaudeville show.
That sounds like fun.
Oh, yeah he's a free spender, alright. A little bit older than I like them; but, awfully distinguished looking.
Is he nice?
Oh, awfully nice. A real gentleman. Except, when he's had a couple of drinks in him. That's to be expected. I'm moving up!
[stops and breathes in slowly]
I'm moving up in the world, honey. No girl ever hits the jackpot till after she passes 14th street.
