    ...arrived at his door, unexpectedly, dressed in that hot little outfit? I didn't even know I was on her radar, thought Carl. And then she took that damn phone call, and bolted for the door. As she sprinted down the walk, she turned and said, "I'm sorry, but ...

    ..which Carl thought kind of creepy because how did she know he wasn't wearing any pants?

    He pulled on his drawers and headed for the door. "Shit. Where the heck have my keys gone to now?", he wondered. His first thought was to check .....

    Meanwhile, over at the Hyperhidrosis Clinic on Fifth and Maple, Carl wipes yet more sweat from his brow and wonders when he'll hear from Thelma.

    "Hello?"

    "Hi, Carl. This is your long lost step uncle, Otis. I need some..."

    "...could it be that Miss. Cleo was really asking him if he... was really from Texas and not RI?"

    Meanwhile...... Ethyl Thriftbuzzard softly closed the door behind her as she exited the Dairy Queen on Second and Bridge Street.
