Lou was the hair stylist for some of the Playboy Bunnies in our city. My sister and I would drool every time a Bunny walked into the salon. We wanted their never-ending legs and their so platinum blonde hair. We wanted everything about anything that went on at Lou’s.

I started crying. “I hate Eddie Fisher!” I screamed.
“But you love Eddie Fisher,” replied my sister.
