Dance music thumps through a club. Guy approaches.
He says: Excuse me. If you were a laser, you’d be set on stunning.
You hear: Laser-cut earrings. How cunning.
You say: They’re by Molly M Designs.
He hears: You’re in for a real good time.
He says: My name is Elmo. Want to tickle me?
You hear: They’re so precise. How can that be?
You say: The designer learned to use a laser-cutter printer while studying architecture at Berkeley. Now she creates ’80s-inspired geometric earrings in birch wood and clear acrylic. Far out, huh?
He hears: Yes. Let’s definitely make out.
You say: She’s also working on a green line made from salvaged materials. Necklaces, too.
He hears: Oh, yeah. I like see-through.
You say: It’s nice to meet you, too.
He hears: Sure, your place will do.
