“He’s the best,” Arianna said when Diane asked her about her new boyfriend. “His name is Daniel, but I call him Lollipop,” she added.
“Lollipop? Why do you call him Lollipop?” Diane asked, a quizzical look on her face.
A far off expression covered Arianna’s face, sort of a dreamy look. “Because he’s a sucker.”
“Because he’s a sucker?” Diane repeated, now really confused. “Isn’t that a bad thing?”
“Oh girl, no,” Arianna responded. “My Lollipop is a really good sucker,” she explained, winking at Diane. “And believe me, honey, that’s a very, very good thing.”
“Oh,” said Diane, hoping that she, too, could find her own lollipop some day soon.
And now for some good, old-fashioned, G-rated fun.
