Well, that is what she said and what would have come of THAT would have been a fine and dandy comedy skit.
However, that is NOT what happened here folks.

She began to pace again, still feeling lonely. She didn't understand the comfortable - but hideously patterned - tie-dyed sofas lining the room, or the boxed food in the corner, or the strangely inaccessible spiral staircase plunging through the ceiling and floor.
