Diane Donovan: Its nice to see you again Dick. What ya doin here? I mean this is Brooklyn and all and you're like slick Manhattan, see.
Dick Dickett: I thought I would catch you here. Those kids of yours seemed entertained. I heard you got some stuff in the mail recently. Do you have a minute to talk.
Diane Donovan: Sure cause you are so polite. The kids and my husband are stuffin their faces, so yeah I got time. What stuff?
Dick Dickett: You have some of Guglielmo Achille Cavellini's art?
Diane Donovan? Who? What art? Oh yeah Cavellini. What a nut case. He is my sista's brother's friend and coo coo as a jay bird.
Dick Dickett: What do you mean?
Diane Donovan: Okay he has a big ego and full of himself. Yea, but he makes some funny stuff, ya know? He writing on nude bodies his personal stuff and I think hes makin it up. Whats that about?
Dick Dicket: Okay, but I heard you got something in the mail?
Diane Donovan: Oh yeah. Yea it was a box full of scraps of a paintin. I was holding it for Steve while he hunted for a new pad. I actually tried to piece it together like a puzzle- the kids helped. The problem was, it was one of those abstract jobs ya know by Picasso or somebody. I liked the colors and I think I got it the way it suppose to be, but I really don't think it matters. I just did it my way. Playing with it was kinda of fun, ya know.
Dick Dickett: You mean you think it looks like a Picasso? A Picasso?
Diane Donovan: Yea I looked it up. I mean I don't know if its real, it looks real. I just did it my way and made it look like I wanted to look. If it was real that would be expensive would'nt it? That guy wouldn't cut up a real painting would he? Well now that ya think about it, he's crazy, maybe it was a real expensive painting, and me and the kids played with it. Ya know that was real cool now that I know it was realer than real.
Dick Disckett: Can I see it? Please, now?
Diane Dickett: Nah, I sent it off again. There were instructions to send it to the next person on the list, someone name Susan Kiss on Bleeker Street. I mean whadda think, no crazy person would cut up a real Picasso.
Dick Dickett: Susan Kiss the graphic artist?
Diane Dickett? Hey where ya going? Oh well- I think he's just a bit intense.
