From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Lucy's on the phone with her mom. Her mom is one of those old stuffy Stepford Wives-type ladies who just wants her daughter to get a boyfriend already.
Strangely, Lucy looks nothing like the rest of the family. She seems to have stepped out of a 16th-century painting. She's 21, beautiful, doesn't know it, and a virgin—partially because her beauty puts off most men.
Yeah, sure. Uh-huh.
After an angry conversation with her mom, Lucy runs off to work and to get breakfast at a local cafe. She's obviously a happy camper because all it takes is some toast to repair her mood.
