Edna: Margie, why are you going through that box of old pictures? If you're looking for something specific, maybe I can help.
Margie: Edna, I'm looking for that picture we made on VJ Day. Remember it was a picture of you, me, and our girlfriends? We were all waiting on our soldier boys. I am so photogenic you know.
Edna: Well, here it is, right in front of your nose. Photogenic you might be, but observant you are not. Why are you looking for that picture?
Margie: Edna! Have you gotten so feeble-minded that you can't recall the anniversary of VJ Day? Lawsy me, can you even recall who your beau was?
Edna: Margie, I am an old woman, some days I'm just glad to be able to remember my name. I suppose you remember your beau; but then, you would. There weren't that many of them.
I do remember V/J Day, though. Everyone was so excited, weren't they?
Margie: They sure were, Edna. It was a tough day for me because I had 5 beaus and had to do some high-stepping so I didn't get caught.
I'm glad you remember your name, Edna. I mainly just remember the kisses.
