A Set Designer Sent from Heaven

This morning Pinky awoke to a honking car horn in his rural driveway. As he hurriedly tried to get his pants on and cover his tattoos, a short round woman with a huge beehive hair-do stepped out of the Monte Carlo with a box that could only have been containing a huge wedding cake. It was not a huge wedding cake, however. Miss Alma Bacon, set designer to the stars, had arrived all the way from Cleburne, Texas with the first maquette of many she plans on designing for Pinky's opera, The Zoo Keeper's Lament. (It came complete with miniature spot lights, too!) Can't you just imagine the miniature hippo resting on this golden hay pile serenading the barn rats?! Pinky about wet his pants.
