“Are those crates of comic books in the back of the El Camino?”
“Those aren’t comic books Ernest, those are Illustrated Classics, all the books a person should’ve read, but in a way you can expect them to actually read. Marge just hauled these up out of my mother’s basement for me; she’s had these since I was a kid.”
“Yeah Ernest, Ilene feels like she needs to brush up on her litter-a-ture now that she’s dancing with the literati himself, good old Mumble-mouth Lloyd.’
“Ilene, is being well read part of Lloyd’s requirements, or yours?”
“Mine alone Ernest; Lloyd reads me well, but he doesn’t write me.”

I also included last week’s prompt, “requirements” to make up for missing last week.
