- Ellen usually asserts impressive academic prowess when looking back--what gives? A sudden burst of honesty or recent glance at old transcripts?
- Fascinating circularity with regard to achievement and the ol' MRS degree--Ellen wasn't smart enough to study in the med school library, but if she had done so she might not have needed to finish law school anyway (Lorrie never even had to think about it). Yet Lorrie was an even poorer student than Ellen, meaning that the decision to study in the med school library probably hinged on some savvier forethought than on confidence in her grades. In the end, who comes off looking sharper?
- Ellen's referring to Philip as an elf. Our glorious dialogue continues, and I'm feeling even better about my working genealogy of Vincent Kutza.
|True love and bliss, accessible to Lorrie|
