“Jeez, it’s not like I meant to,” Dan, embarrassed, said. “It was an accident.”

“You always do that when you get excited,” Anita said. “It’s disgusting.”

“You’re missing the point,” Dan said.

“Well, by all means,” Anita said, “Don’t hesitate to get to the point, but please leave out any extraneous details.”

Losing patience, Anita said, “Yes, I know that. So what?”

“Uncle Harry was cleaning out her place and guess what he found there,” Dan said excitedly.

Anita sighed. “I’ll bite. What did he find?”

“Aunt Dora kept that watermelon-sized gallbladder in a jar filled with formaldehyde in her fucking attic!”
