It began as a soliloquy on bandages, and ended with a bizarre simile.
I heard a lot of drawer opening and closing and wrapper crinkling, but I really did not want to get up to find out what the girls were doing in the bathroom. No need-- they came to me. Cue the Amanda lecture:

And we don’t like the ones with the medicine inside because they are too sticky and too hard to pull off. I mean, it’s like I’m a wet buffalo and Libby’s pulling on the end of my tail!”
