Adventures with Lydia!
Lydia Larson: Cancer, Ginger, Athlete
It’s like 5p, and Lydia gets off work at 3p. Cool. She took a nap, and now she’s invited Edith over.
(Edith’s this adorable little nerd/politician. What she really wants to do is become a scientist, but she’s gotta pay the bills until something in the science track opens up.)
Lydia’s giving her a hug, but her cell phone starts ringing. Lydia picks up the phone, and it’s this old guy she’s friends with. He’s discovered the hip scene downtown and wants to know if Lydia would like to come check it out.
Of course, Lydia has to decline the invitation. (She just invited Edith over, she’s hanging out with Edith.)
“Sorry, Edith. I’m really popular with the elderly today.”
As soon as Lydia hangs up, Old Guy calls her back just to chat. (Bless him.)
Unfortunately, Lydia has to hang up again; she’s hanging with Edith.
(Totally different old guy walking up the street.)
Finally, some time with Edith. Look how adorable she is at the ballet bar?
Lydia cranks the cool jams, and makes dinner.
Food gets thrown, and it’s the funniest thing in the world! (Edith seems pretty amused as well!)
Next, Lydia tries to offer up some of the food from her spoon, but Edith isn’t having it.
Apparently, she can have food hurtling at her, but God forbid you try a more direct approach! Got it.
At that point, table manners go completely out the window…
And with that approach dinner is quickly complete.
Lydia does the dishes, while Edith does a dance…
Finally, Lydia joins in, (once the dishes are finished.)
But, she does have work tomorrow, so it’s not long before she has to say ‘goodnight.’
Once Edith leaves, Lydia turns off the radio like the smoothest of operators…
And, goes to bed.
