“We have only bathroom, everybody can use it.”
“There should be two bathrooms, one for men and one for women. It’s not one gender, there are two.”
“Actually there are more than two genders, some people don’t identify as man or woman, they always have problems using a restroom,” Amy explained.
“These people are sick and should see a doctor.”
Lauren got up and handed Amy the magazine back.
“What do you think?” The man asked her. “Are there more than two genders?”

“Happily and peaceful?”
“Like a hermit. You are over fifteen minutes away from the nearest bar - and that is by car.”
“More like twenty, you can’t drive fast down the mountain in a car. Your pocket rocket might not have many problems with the road, cars have.”
“So why? You could stay in Silver Lake with me. Or in Malibu with Ramon.”
