Cynthia leaps up from the computer desk and starts jumping around the room.
Cynthia: Marcy! Wake up and listen to this!
Ellen Degeneres’s natural pet food company, Halo, partnered with FreeKibble.com to give a 10,000 meal donation for shelter animals as swag bag gifts for the twenty Oscar nominees who didn’t win. WHICH ADDS UP TO 200,000 MEALS!
Marcy: Why are you yelling?
Cynthia: BECAUSE IT IS SO REFRESHING!
Cynthia jumps around some more, thinking she is doing a great interpretation of an Ellen dance.
Cynthia: Here I was about ready to vomit over the overly egotistical and obsessive self congratulatory aspect of the Oscars and Ellen goes and does something so sweet I want to cry and give her an Oscar for Best Celebrity Animal-tarian. Or something.
Marcy: So your hope in humanity is restored?
Forget the Fred Leighton jewels, the Prada gowns, and the Smug Smirks.
Two. Hundred. Thousand. meals will be given to our society’s lost, abandoned, and neglected pets.

Marcy: As a former shelter inhabitant –
Cynthia: Wait. (she stops jumping) You are finally admitting that you were a shelter kitty?
Marcy: I don’t want Ellen to think I’m not proud of who I am. Although I’m still French. Shall we?
Marcy raises her Friskies Halo Spot’s Stew can. Cynthia raises her martini glass.
Marcy and Cynthia: Cheers to Ellen for being a bountiful benevolent bighearted generous Degeneres.
Marcy: and a big slurpy kitty kiss from former shelter kitty marcy. thank you + meow.
