Nope, and not a brain surgeon,



Course she'd do pretty good as a

butcher. She could retire in two

years on the overcharges alone.

Laughing, the men walk to the kitchen to fill their glasses.

Sissy is left to feel sorry for herself in front of her cake.


One thing, that youngun would make

one hell of a hitchhiker...

This startles Sissy. A new word that tinkles in her head

with a supernatural echo. Sissy looks at her thumbs.


...if she was a boy, I mean.


Dr. Dreyfus looks over Sissy's thumbs.


She is, if I may speak frankly,

somewhat of a medical oddity. Due to

impaired dexterity, her life

activities and career potentialities

will be reduced. It could be worse.

Bring her back to me if there ever

learn to live with them.


That she will. That she will. The

Lord made them things big for a

purpose. God don't never git tired

of testing our kind. It's a punishment
