Not at home, but I'm able to post a single quick post on Lucy and Sam. I'll just copy and paste it into the main file when I have my computer back, since I forgot to synch up my Google Drive version for the last month or so. Or ever, to be totally honest. Here's the Table of Contents.

Kenny has an unhealthy fascination with diner food. He thinks that it is the most quintessential and true American food. He also has a thing for the waitress uniforms. I let him pick the place for breakfast, and we found ourselves at some tiny hole in the wall. He ordered something covered in bacon; I just got coffee. It seemed like the right thing to do at a diner.
"Ok, so go over your plan. "
"We meet the girls, I tell the reporter the truth, then we go there and deliver Lucy's puppets."
"Yeah. That sounds like a plan, I think."
"Oh, and if possible, we bring Christine to see Peter," I said.
"That's kind of a dick move," Kenny said between bites. "I approve."
Normally, I would be disturbed when he so readily agreed to my plans, but I think we approved of the plan for different reasons. He wanted to screw over Peter, and I just wanted to set things right.
"So, what's my job in all of this?"
"Have fun," I said. "Maybe hit on a girl or do whatever you normally do at these sorts of things."
Kenny shook his head. "No, I think I'll just follow your lead. This should be fun. Do I need a fake accent for anything?"
"No. No fake accents; no fake names. No anything. We're going to be there as tellers of truth," I said. "Even harsh, unpleasant truths."
"Do you want to get started on the truth-telling a little early?"
"Sure. Do I need to get French toast for this?"
"I changed your tuxedo rental. To a pink one, in case, you know, you can't go through with it."
"I'm going to go through with it," I said. "This is actually important to me, so I'd like it if you don't joke around."
"I'm not. I figured if you do go through with it, you could say: 'And real men wear pink!'"
"Call them up and fix it," I said. It was odd; usually Kenny's antics took me off stride much more than it was today. It was like I'd found a purpose, so I couldn't be shaken.
"Alright. So, tell me about the puppets." I figured that was a fair question, and I began to tell Kenny about the puppets.
