String Theory

Clotho: Here’s the next thread.

Lachesis: Ew.

Atropos: Where did that come from?

Clotho: Piggly Wiggly. They had a sale.

Atropos: It’s pretty ugly.

Clotho: Thread is thread, sister.

Lachesis: Well, hand it over. Boy. (Pause.) Boy. What do you think, girls?

Clotho: Peanut sheller?

Lachesis: Too ambitious.

Atropos: Crib death.

Clotho: You always say that.

Atropos: We could always make another Baldwin.

Lachesis: No more Baldwins! What is it with you and Baldwins?

Atropos: I just think they look funny.

Clotho: Oh, just throw him in a cubicle somewhere.

Atropos: I thought even “peanut sheller” was too ambitious.

Lachesis: It is.

(General cackling.)

Clotho: Okay, here you are.

Lachesis: Thanks. I’ll just feed him in right . . . here, I guess. That’s not too bad.

Atropos: Ugh. It sure is funny-looking that way . . .

Clotho: Well . . .

Atropos: I’m cutting him off.

Lachesis: Get out of here! Stop waving those fucking scissors around!

Atropos: Well, he’s not helping things!

Clotho: Come on, Atropos, look at the thread right over there. It’s that Caftan Person. Don’t start pretending to have standards now.

Lachesis: Really. What is that?

Atropos: An experiment. I don’t have to tell you.

Clotho: Well, this is all just very Perry Ellis, and I thought we were shooting for Armani here.

Lachesis: You’re the one who picked the thread. What is that other one, again?

Clotho (reading label): “Skot.”

Lachesis: What a dumb name.

Atropos: I have big plans for this one.
