Sherry tried the door, It opened!
Alexy the phlebotomist turned with a grimace in surprise. “AHHHhhhmmm- Can I help you?”
Sherry, a beauty in white, looked coyly at Alexy.
“Great costume, dude. You kinda scared me there. You’re a Collins look-alike as a phlebotomist!”
“Pride and Prejudice Mr. Collins?”
“Eww, Dude, Barnabas Collins – Dark Shadows.”
Sherry sidled up, ‘Sexy broody not Creepy Vicar.’”
Alexy smiled. It hurt. “Can I help you – uh Miss … ”
“Sherry, my friends call me Sweet Sherry.”
Alexy had his plus one.
