Servant: Excuse me, Mademoiselle, but I believe the gentleman across the hall is trying to send you a message.
Colette: What, but why? I haven’t even raised my fan!
Servant: I fear the young gentleman is enamored, Mlle.
Colette: Well. (she glances up, now aware of the gentleman across the hall. Raising her fan, she does a series of bizarre gestures with it.)
Mlle.’s friend approaches.
Cherise: Colette! My dear, whatever is the matter with you? Are you having a spasm?
Colette: No, dear God,Cherise, haven’t you ever seen an LOL?
Cherise: No, I’m afraid not. Those are not my arts.
Colette: Well, I am signaling to the man across the hall. He had the audacity to send the servant over.
Cherise: Now he is raising his eyebrows over his glass at you!
Colette: Oh dear! Did I pull of LOL or possibly ROFL…or possibly…oh no…it COULDN’T BE!
Cherise’s eyes widen.
Cherise: Oh no, Colette, I am afraid it MIGHT…he is gesturing like a madman!
Colette: Well, take THIS! (she does another sequence of elaborate gestures with the fan).
(Other side of the room)
Jean Claude: I think she likes you, mate.
Pierre: Rather? I think it more likely she has lost control of her fan.
Jean Claude: Well out of control is all the better for you, my friend.
Pierre: Well, really? Do you think I should approach?
Jean Claude: You have the eyebrows of a Neanderthal, Pierre. She could not have mistaken your message.
Pierre: Wait. Watch now, what is she doing with her fan?
Jean Claude: I’m fairly certain that is obscene, friend. You should go over NOW.
