OK then, make it so I will be thin.
Bam! Be a thin woman.
Perfect. Thank You.
You’re very welcome.
Uh-Oh, wait a minute…I don’t think it worked.
No, not at all.
Can you try again?
Sure. Poof! You’re a very thin woman!
Thanks. You’re great to do this.
How did it work this time?
Uh, let’s see… I guess it didn’t. I’m still the same.
What did you expect?
I expected to lose a lot of weight right on the spot.
That’s ridiculous, and you know it.
No I don’t know it. That’s what I want.
It may be what you want, but it’s not what you’ll get.
Are you joking?
Do you have a back-up plan?
‘Cause I keep hoping someone like you will come along and perform the magic.
That would be so wonderful, wouldn’t it?
It sure would.
It’s a pretty wild hope though, isn’t it?
I’m beginning to think so.
What’s the alternative?
I hate to think of all it will take.
Really? Do you think it would be any harder than counting on magic time and time again—and being disappointed time and time again?
When you put it that way, I can see that nothing is harder on me than that.
I guess it’s all in your own hands.
I think you’re right.
