Deep Down, She’s Really Superficial

Lola wasn’t as dumb as she looked. Men often mistook her for a ditzy blond, but if they thought that beneath that shapely exterior, behind those black Wayfarers, and below that plunging neckline lived just another wannabe Hollywood starlet, who was destined to make a few commercials, marry a dentist and move to Encino, where she would raise 3 toe-headed kids who would all eventually succumb to drug problems, they were woefully wrong.

By their third date, Richard had seen through Lola’s studied superficiality and had made a mental note: This one may look empty as a Safeway parking lot at midnight, but she’s not. There’s a lot more going on there, than meets the eye. He sized her up and silently declared to himself, She doesn't know it yet, but I AM going to marry this woman, if it’s the last thing I do on earth.

As it turned out, it nearly was.
