A preview of the upcoming Salem’s Lot dialogue:

Andrea: Salem’s Lot is slow going.
Pat: At first. After the first 50 pages, I tore through it.
Andrea: I am almost halfway through.
Pat: You have no appreciation of vampire stories that don’t involve homosexual incest.
Andrea: Probably. It’s not bad—I am just not compelled.
Pat: Pregnancy is ruining your literary acumen.
Andrea: Possibly.

Yes, we actually have an editing process. It looks something like this:

Pat: Excuse me, but did you really think that I would believe for a second that I said “LOLOLOLOL HILARIOUS”?
Andrea: You did! I NEVER say LOL. EVER.
Pat: me: IS THAT BARLOW IN THE FUCKING WINDOW?
11:58 AM Andrea: LOLOLOLOL HILARIOUS
Andrea: That last timestamp was missing from my copy. I stand corrected.
Pat: No, it’s not. I’m looking at the text file as we speak.
Andrea: Well, maybe I accidentally deleted it!
Pat: me: IS THAT BARLOW IN THE FUCKING WINDOW?
PM Andrea: LOLOLOLOL HILARIOUS haha rob lowe
Andrea: I think I was confused by all the caps in both and assumed they went together.
Pat: Let me clarify, because I want to make sure I’m hearing you right. You thought I had said, and I quote: “IS THAT BARLOW IN THE FUCKING WINDOW? PM Andrea: LOLOLOLOL HILARIOUS”?
Andrea: Yes.
