The Posh Yarn living room. Posh Dee and Tony are twisting up the new cashmere yarn into skeins.
Tony: So what do you think of the new yarn then?
Dee: It’s incredible. Its so soft and smooshy. I want to keep it all.
Dee: But I won’t.
Dee: I can’t wait for everyone to see it.
Tony: You have to tell me if there’s any colours you like.
Dee (forgetting that he always says this, and is really just fishing for compliments, gets excited): Why, can I pick out some for myself?
Dee: I love this red one. Its so subtle and so rich.
Tony: I like that one too.
Dee: It would make the most beautiful shawl. I don’t have a red shawl. Everyone should have a red shawl in their life.
Dee: I could just take some, and you’d never know about it. I’ll just take them and hide them.
Tony: I’ll do a stock count.
Dee: You know what? This is in the Bible! It says somewhere you shouldn’t muzzle a bull while it’s threshing!
Tony: Huh??? What’s threshing?
Dee: Ummmm. I don’t know. But you shouldn’t be cruel to animals and this is cruelty to humans.
Tony: (raises eyebrows)
Dee: (sulkily) Well it is.
(Even longer silence)
Dee: It’s good for business, you know, when I keep yarn. It’s important for promotional purposes that I knit with our own yarn.
Tony: But you don’t knit with it, you just stash it. That’s not good for any purposes.
Dee: Yes it is, it’s good for happiness. It’s a mental health purpose. It’s better than a prescription. You’re withholding medicine.
Dee: (in wheedling voice) Just one or two little skeins, just a few skeins. No one will even miss them. Just these 5 purple ones. Just…..
Tony: (leaves the room)
