We went on drinking for a while. Dialogue as follows.
I [Miss Shitsville]: Have you finished your drink yet?
Roger: Easy love. [Drinking deep.] Yeah that’s alright. Good stuff, isn’t it. The ice blocks is a bit big though.
MS: Those ice blocks come from NASA.
Roger: Oh like you mean. Are they those underwater people?
Roger: NASA. Sailors and shit. They make Aerodynamics so you can breathe underwater for a long time.
MS: Have you ever been under water for a long time?
MS: Would you like to be?
Roger: It’s hot isn’t it?
MS: You’d probably prefer the weather back in Melbourne.
Roger: Nah it’s fucking freezing in Melbourne. Gets you right down.
MS: Is that why you came to Texas?
Roger: It’s my gap year.
MS: You decided to spend your gap year on holiday in only the world’s worst places?
Roger: Football’s finished anyway. Do you like football?
I do not like football.
MS: In Texas the only sport is sniping.
Roger: That’s underwater, yeah?
MS: You mean snorkelling?
Roger: And you’re gonna take me snorkelling later?
I bethought myself to make a joke.
MS: In Texas the only really wet people are Christian.
Roger: ? Do Christians like snorkelling?
Now another whore, Evelyn Einstein, was eyeing him off.
Roger: [to Evelyn] What are you then, eh?
Evelyn Einstein: [in honeyed tones] I’m the wettest thing in Texas.
Roger: Oh. [To me] Is she a Christian?
MS: Evelyn Einstein works in the whorehouse… She’s the union rep.
