Excerpts from The World of Art

SECTION S: AN EXCERPT FROM THE WORLD OF ART

ART

Of course. If there’s one thing you have taught me, it’s how blindly following orders can bring true peace of mind. Explains so much about Nazi Germany. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms. I’m not looking for trouble. I’m looking for a tenant with a steady income. What are you looking for?

JO

Something better than a guy in bunny slippers.

ART

I hope you find it. I honestly do.

JO

I did. So tell me about your new tenant. I repeat. If it happened to me, it could happen to you!

ART

She fell right into my lap.

JO

Oh! A lap dancer!

ART

Could be. Her name is Aurora.

JO

That’s a stripper name alright.

ART

She contacted me. Looking for a place downtown.

JO

How is she paying you? You do remember Section S?

ART

“Both parties are forbidden to engage in sexual relations with each other while this covenant is in force”? You insisted on that clause, remember?

JO

You had no problem. Are you going to take that out?

ART

Why would I?
