Lola Makes the Call

Lola looked at the business card which contained on the back, Richard’s neat handwriting.

So, Richard’s seeing a female shrink, is he? she erroneously surmised. I guess I should have suspected it. He has seemed a little depressed these last few weeks—ever since he had to admit his comedy routine wasn’t funny and his stand-up career was going nowhere. It’s too bad that he’s had to take a job as a chauffeur, but it can’t be such a bad job driving studio executives around and meeting famous celebrities, not really?

Lola picked up her phone and began to dial the number on the front of the business card. She was eager to make an appointment to meet this “Dr. Jackie Weston,” even if Lola imagined she would have to fabricate a range of psychological “issues,” in order to get her first appointment.
