I don't know how I missed "Barfly 2." Must of been the bug clouding my visual receptors. To start a thread is probably not necessarily "special." Maybe it's the exact opposite - that is, the one who has the final word before the thread expires, may be the special one.
You know, the situation seems so ripe for Ari to take a chance. She's feeling confused and in a drunken state of futility to match. Why not go for the gold, chuck Rod, and seeketh out Sherry. She could try a date with Ari just for the novelty of it, couldn't she? Maybe she could one-up the devilshly crafty Mir who never quite "made-out" with the unwittingly willing attorney.
That's it! Turn the tables on her, Sherry! Show Mir who's the duchess of spades, so to speak!
That's all folks ....
