Love's Labour's Lost Bus of Ultimate Transportation. Morgan exits the bus as Salima wonders whether she's supposed to come with him. Morgan's all, "Whatever. Up to you." Salima huffily follows him off the bus. As they walk home along the tree-lined streets of Highland Park, Morgan tells us, "She's grounded. She can't talk on the phone. She's not allowed to see me. She's not even supposed to see me at school. I've explained it so many times; I'm just so tired of it. I would rather have it over because I'm worried about her."
Heh. Heh heh. No, I'm not laughing at Morgan's pain. I'm laughing at The Sunshine Lady, who is once again making an appearance. Heh. In the last recap, I made some rather, er, disparaging remarks about The Sunshine Lady. I got called on the carpet for it (in a really nice way) by ViVA86, a current student at HPHS and one of the posters. I had just never come across anything quite like a middle-aged high-school administrator referring to herself as "The Sunshine Lady," and it baffled me. But now I'm used to it. And now she's hilarious. After the non-commercial, The Sunshine Lady speaks: "Good morning, Highland Park. This must be the voice of the District 113 Sunshine Lady [Is there a District 115 Sunshine Lady? Or a District 229? Is this a trend of which I am not aware? Heh] with our first announcements in May. And of course, we all remember this weekend is Prom, and pastel dresses continue to reign. However, there's a new design out for this year and it's that one-shoulder, spaghetti-strap design [ew]. They do look kind of cute, but let me suggest that if Mother Nature really amply endowed you [HEE], the structural flaws of spaghetti straps suggest you may want to select another style." Oh. My. God. If my lungs weren't already contaminated with twenty years of cigarette smoking, they'd be collapsing due to the laughter I am currently bombarding them with. Hee. And hee. I think I lurve this woman. As ViVA86 said in an email to me, "[The Sunshine Lady] once remarked about pantyhose and that too many times she sees sausage legs -- two sausages in a one-sausage package." HA! Since the Sunshine Lady recently retired, maybe I can look into nabbing that job when my current day job goes under. I need options, people!
