Did you know Elvis had a twin brother?

Testing, testing, one, two, three. I'm having that dream again, except this time I'm in a casino, and I have a laptop and a monkey instead of a tommy gun and my-- lady, uh. Friend. My lady friend. My friend who is also a lady.

Not that there's a second option.

Hey, did you know, when Viva Las Vegas came out, some tabloids took the pictures of the chaple scene and said Elvis and Ann-Margret'd really gotten married?

Did you Sammy Davis Jr is in Diamonds Are Forever?

Does anyone know where I am?

Sammy Davis, Jr., is in Diamonds Are Forever? Where?

I would guess we were on the Las Vegas Strip if there was anything outside besides cacti and tumbleweeds. Did you know that when the word cactus was coined, it was a kind of artichoke? They're basically overgrown thistle plants that people eat with spinach, and someone must have thought that pointy bits were pointy bits, so--cacti. But it's definitely cacti of the American southwest outside, not of Europe.

That's what I get for watching the movies on TV.

Oh, you have a monkey? What kind is it?

Are those the little black and white ones?

Mine just has a couple of twin beds and a desk that looks like it's nailed to the floor. No chandeliers here.

I used to go to the zoo and watch them climb on logs and ropes. I don't remember the poo-flinging, but there was an inch of plexiglass between us.

It's only Vegas if the whole city is one hotel. Didn't you look out your window? It's all desert.

Sounds like it was a good thing I never got the pet howler monkey I wanted when I was five. Bees' bodily functions are much less messy--unless, of course, you spill some honey at the breakfast table.

Pimms! Kitty Pimms. What's your name?

They actually throw the honey up, so unless you think of vomiting like a squirting action, it's more of a...well, a vomiting action.

Nice to meet you, too, Beth! Did you walk into this place by accident, too?

You might like it better in something else. It's very good in the crusts of pies.

The same thing happened to me--except with my boyfriend. Maybe this is an alternate dimension that draws its population from halves of couples in the middle of doing things together.

That's a good question.

...Mine has a few slices! They're not quite as good as Pie Hole pies, but there's definitely honey in the crust. Could use a little gruyere.

Metaphorically in both our cases; Ned and I were just having lunch.

It's Ned's--my boyfriend's--pie shop. If you like the name, you'll have to visit us sometime--the storefront is shaped like a pie! Sometimes I help out there, but I usually...do other things.

Where were you in France? I've always wanted to go there, they have some of the most magical cheese in the world.

We're in Papen County--the only Pie Hole in the area! It's in the yellow pages. And if you forget the name, you can always ask people about the building shaped like a pie.

Paris is one of the best places in the world for cheese. Be sure to try the brie next time you're there; we always used to import our brie when I was growing up, there's really nothing like it. The samples in the mini-cheeseboxes in these rooms aren't a bad selection, though, if you want a bite now.

Were they discontinued at some point?

It probably couldn't hurt them, could it? There aren't a lot of dairy products in the rain forest, but--put it in front of her and see what she thinks?

Gendercide? Did someone kill off all the men en masse while I wasn't looking?

Sounds like a true cheese connoisseur. Or as close as monkeys get.

Ned and I were eating lunch half an hour ago. I would have noticed if he was dead.

Can you get her a little monocle to wear when you do?

Nope, we're right here on Earth. If this alternate dimension of relationship interruptus is Earth, that is--otherwise, we're right there on Earth. No genocides of any kind going on in the area that I know of, and in my line of work, we probably would have noticed.

Probably, but monkeys with little monocles are just so cute. Maybe a bowtie on a collar would be a better first step to a monkey butler.

Close. Private investigator--you have a murder, we'll solve it.

That's too bad. Monkeys always seemed like the best butlers in movies.

A dream? Oh, or it could be mass hallucination! Which would explain why it sounds like the kind of movie they run on tv at three in the morning, where all the men have died and the world's in ruins.

So you're a regular Houdini. Do you perform much? In magic shows, or the circus, or...?

If you're watching the right channels, they do. I used to sneak downstairs after my aunts and mother went to bed and watch them when I was younger.

Did you ever do the one where they drop you in a tank of water while you're handcuffed, or is that a little equipment-heavy for amateur night?

Disaster movies aren't always educational, unless you count The Towering Inferno as a lesson on fire safety. Planet of Women might have been helpful, though.

I wonder if they have any in storage here. A Vegas hotel should have a magic act, even if it's in an aromantic alternate dimension.

There's a list of hotel attractions on the door to the hallway, and it says the first floor has a theater.

I'm ready to investigate if you are.
