Actressis a new single city lady. She lives in swinging Chelsea and rides the IND line. If you are in that status, indeed she is on the market for a fella. But you know what? She's got one new rule: No more actors! That’s a way to learn, huh?
In the past, Katie went out with them and married them, but it's never been perfect as she has expected. So she's thinking she'll try a new approach: artists. Katie is being shown around town to different art galleries by her partner at the dressmaking business, Jeanne Yang, where she is busy at this moment. Yang thinks Katie would do fit with a nice "unassuming artist," which is sort of an odd thing to say, because nearly every artists are not exactly "unassuming" or even, y'know, stable type people. Lots of them are! Surely loads of them are.
But saying "No, I'm not going to date another actor, it never works" and then picking artists? What about an accountant. And it’s not necessarily some showy accountant if there is one, who works with lots of dough and rubbed elbows with the finance crowd. An accountant named Stanley for example with a stack of papers in a moldy office in Astoria who regularly works with little old ladies. That looks like a right-sized change of tempo. Again, what about a high school math teacher with an ex-wife named Debbie and a grumpy teenage son who hates him named Zack who lives in Teaneck and wearing the same pair of glasses for two decades? That seems nice and unpretentious. Essentially what they are saying Katie dear, is dream bigger. Go beyond your horizons. Think way outside the box. Bear in mind, an artist is no different from an actor. But Gary the dentist who lives in that condo in Yonkers? That's your ticket.
