Scout tells Ari that in 2021 they are going to focus on self-improvement... first and foremost, improving those SEXTING SKILLS!!! Ari asks to see an example, so Scout reads them a "sexy poem"... to which Ari responds, "I'm sorry is this a love poem for the moon or a sext?" Scout worries, "is there a difference?"

Ari tells Scout to leave the poetry and go straight to the "good stuff." Here's an example that Ari sent over breakfast that morning, "Both fists enter and as I start to come, your--" Scout is scandalized that Ari sent something like that over Lucky Charms, but the girl in question responds to Ari. A success! Scout shakes their head and walks away, calling over their shoulder, "Please wait until I exit before you return that text, Romeo!"
