“Miss Violet, might I have a minute of your time?” Guess they really are down South. As was I, and I still say “Yes, Sir” and “Yes, Ma’am” to people, among other eccentricities.
Seems that the “man who barely knows how to boil water” didn’t bother telling Violet about Cherry’s knowledge of their secret relationship. The way Cherry can’t keep her temper, she’ll no doubt reveal her awareness all by herself. With their history, don’t you wonder why Violet keeps Cherry around? Oh, sure, the needs of the strip. But really, Rivera can create more characters and put Cherry into a different situation.
