“Oh stop, Harold,” Elaine said. “Tonight is your new boss’ Christmas party. It’s going to be a joyous occasion and I want to make a good impression.”
“You’ll certainly make an impression, Elaine,” Harold said. “It’s over the top. You look like a freaking clown. And if you don’t stop drinking those martinis one after the other, you’ll be giving off fumes like an old gin mill.”
