Episode 37 - Chapter 31 - "Vertex"
Okay, the Holidays are over and the Gals are back at it, picking up with Chapter 31: "Vertex." The title refers to a situation Scottie finds herself in a lot these days when she's interacting with those who,"knew her when." She's often at the point where two sides of a triangle meet - and in this case, one side is the past and the other is the present.Sometimes, as was the case with Scottie's dear friend Annie, the present is too startling (damn Scottie's a right fine woman) and the past something Annie wasn't sure she wanted to give up just yet (Scott made a good man)... Marcy points out that those are good signs, friends like Annie loved Scott and are sorry and miss "him." And over time, they will come to see that all the things they loved in Scott in the first place are because Scottie is a good person.
"I didn't expect a woman, I exected a man dressed like one..."
Scottie slams into a nightmare with one of her best friends. Who is best enough to be completely honest. This backhand compliment is still twisting Scottie's brain... Back when Annie, got her very in-person glimpse of Scottie... she burst into tears, overwhelmed she said by the woman standing before her. Scottie was still trying to take this as the bruattly honest compliment it trulywas. No trace of the "dude" she wore for all those years was left. But... it was the intenstiy and the shock that shook them both. It would take a brinch of breakfast salad and a lot of hugs for Annie to get to point where she accepted that she loved both versions of Scottie... and well, that's at least a start...
