This little snippet of dialogue plays out while Darlene and Tommy Ray are dressing the mayor's corpse. Darlene, who is the narrator of the story, considers herself positive and enterprising while the complete opposite of her personality is Richie, who complains all the time.
“You see, I think positive and I’m enterprising. You have to be enterprising if you’re gonna get anywhere in this world.”
Tommy Ray looked at Richie in the way that only Tommy Ray could look at someone. “We need to be enterprising like Darlene.”
“Tommy, I’m sitting here, holding a dead body. If this is enterprising, I don’t want none of it.”
