Understanding the World

“Is it important to understand everything?” Jackie asked Buck, as she pointed the Black Mercedes down Wilshire Blvd, in the direction of the afternoon sun.

“Well I guess not, but it sure helps to understand some things.”

“I kissed you. You understand that, don’t you?”

“Yes, I do. There was no mistakin' that.”

“And what do you think that kiss meant?” Jackie inquired.

Buck paused for a moment, choosing his words carefully, and looking into Jackie’s impenetrable sun-glassed glare, deliberately stated, “The world.”
