Barricade… 136 Words

wk-135-barricade

Ethel slips past the barricade, with Cheryl hot on her heels.

“Ethel! What the hell are you doing? We aren’t supposed to go in there.”

“Oh silly, you know I like to live dangerously.”

“I think I would say foolishly. And you don’t follow rules!”

Ethel, tired of discussing the matter takes off down the dark hall. “I want to see what they are doing.”

Cheryl catches up as Ethel is peeking around a corner into the lit exhibition hall. She peeks around too. People wearing white gloves are positioning artworks on the wall.

“That’s Andy Warhol. I didn’t know you were a big Warhol fan.”

“I’m not, Cheryl, but I’m a big Marilyn fan. You know that.”

“Oh yes, I remember your blonde phase.”

They didn’t hear the guard behind them.

“Look, there she is!”

If you like Marilyn as much as Ethel and I and happen to be in Chicago, you can see ANDY WARHOL – FROM A TO B AND BACK AGAIN at The Art Institute right now. I wrote this with my friend Aggie Reilly in mind, who lives in Chicago and loves Marilyn too.
