Soap Opera "As The Mouse Moves" - Monday June 28th 2004
"Hi Amanda. How have you been?" Jan asked as she watched the sales girl marking down a rack of thongs in Skeeter's lingerie store on Bleecker Street.
"Oh great. I've met so many women in this shop. Look, I've been meaning to ask you…" she said hesitating.
"What?" Jan asked the openly gay sales clerk.
"Do you think you'll be hiring anymore sales girls?"
"No, sales are down. I don't think so," Jan said.
"Well, if you do let me know. I've got some girlfriends that would love to work here."
"Is Skeeter here?" Jan asked looking towards the back of the store.
"Yeah, he's in his office."
"Good," Jan said as she started towards the back of the store.
"Don't you want to know if he's been behaving himself?" Amanda asked referring to the fact that Jan paid her to report Skeeter's extramarital affairs.
Jan stopped and turned to look at her. "Has he?" she asked.
"Yes. For the first time since I've worked here I don't have anything to report," she said smiling as she thought this would probably make Jan very happy and perhaps she'd get a raise.
"That won't do me any good now," Jan said as she turned and started towards Skeeter's office as Amanda watched puzzled by her words.
"Skeeter," Jan said as she opened the door.
"Hey," he said putting down the box cutter he was using to open boxes of red, white and blue thongs he'd ordered for the Fourth of July.
"I have the papers all done and the changes made that you wanted," she said referring to their divorce.
"Great. Let me see," he said as she opened her purse and took out an envelope and handed it to him.
He opened the envelope and took out the legal documents. His eyes quickly read through the legal rhetoric as his heart raced.
"It's all there, just as you requested," she said as she watched him.
"Yeah. Yeah, it seems to be. This looks good to me," he said smiling as he came to the property settlement.
"I thought you'd be happy. Now you have this sleazy store all to yourself," she said glancing around at the sheer lingerie.
"Yeah," he muttered as he continued to read. "What about the cash settlement?" he asked turning the page.
"It's on page six," she said watching him quickly turn to page six.
"Oh yeah. Okay. This is great!" he said surprised to see that she had everything included that he had requested.
"I'm glad you're finally happy about something Skeeter," she said bitterly.
"Hey Baby, you got something out of it too," he said.
"I kept you satisfied didn't I?" he said grinning.
"Was it a chore for you Skeeter?"
"No. I've never considered that a chore. Just a duty when you're married, I guess," he said.
"Oh and when you aren't married. What is it then?"
"Fun," he said grinning broadly.
"So I guess you'll be having a lot of fun now?"
"You going to miss it baby?"
"Of course Skeeter. You know I've loved being married to you when you behaved like a husband."
"Always like to leave em' smiling," he said as he glanced back down at the last page of the document. "You haven't signed it Jan," he said as his smiled faded.
