In the meantime, I remembered a conversation I had with Lothar... well, as close as one can get to conversation with him.... when I was trying to make sense out of an issue of Transgalactic Cosmopolitan. (Is this really what 80% females of the galaxy read? I can't make heads or tails of it.) I was mostly enjoying the pictures at that point... I mean, they get away with some stuff Playbeing doesn't, if you know what I mean... when Lothar pointed to a fashion ad and reported "Pretty dress!"
Then he ate my magazine. But that's neither here nor there.
So anyway, I decided Lothar might be interested in helping me figure out what pretty dress to wear to the New Year's Gala, since I haven't any idea. I suppose him wearing a pink dress made him less intimidating looking, 'cause now he's disappeared.
Question is, do I go look for him, or get out the sawed off energy rifle and guard my precious tomatoes from violation?
That came out all wrong. You know what I mean.
Incidentally, I been thinking about it, and Lothar's coloration and mine are nothing alike, so using him as a test mannequin might not've worked anyway. And I don't think pink's a great color for me or him. I wonder what he'd think of a nice pastel blue...
