She had lost a lot of weight after Jessica’s father ran off, she said as if answering unasked questions, yet another intimate detail of several she offered up as if she thought Hoot should know.  As if it explained why her skin was creased and sagging in places you wouldn’t ordinarily think susceptible to creasing and sagging, leaving her looking as if she was wearing hand-me-down skin that had belonged to a much larger woman in a previous life.  To Hoot, she resembled a stick of flirtatious pepperoni.
