Devan:  Oh, Ella!

Ella:  What?

Devan:  So, I have this thing that I need done, and nobody here is going to want to do it.

Ella:  Mason will do it!

Devan:  Mason will do it?

Ella:  Yeah, of course. He’ll definitely do it.

Devan:  Why do you think he’ll do it?

Ella:  He’ll do anything I tell him to. He’s wrapped around my finger.

Devan:  So, he’ll basically do anything you tell him to do? Like what? Give me some examples.

Ella:  So, I think…I got him to do my laundry. And then…oh yeah, I got him to do my pedicure today. I didn’t have to pay for that. It’s awesome.

Devan:  Interesting. Hey, Mason!

Mason:  Yeah, boss! Hey, Ella!

Ella:  Hi Mason!

Devan:  So, I have something I need you to do for me.

Mason:  Yeah? What is it?

Devan:  I need you to become friends with Jeff the lawyer.

Mason:  No way! I absolutely do not want to do that. I hate that guy.

Devan:  I need someone to talk to him to find out the secrets with what’s going on with this negotiation.

Mason:  I don’t think so, boss.

Ella:  But Mason, no one else can do it! You’re just such a nice person and he would trust you, I mean, I would trust you. I’d want you to befriend me if I was trying to get secrets from a company.

Mason:  Okay, I’ll do it. I’m the man for the job. I am totally going to do this, boss! You don’t even know how good I’m going to do it! I’m going to…Do the…Bye! I’m going to go start now.

Devan needs someone to become friends with Jeff, the lawyer who is trying to buy her company so that she can learn more about him. She asks Ella who might be willing to do it and she says that Mason will. He’ll do anything. He did her laundry and painted her toenails. He’s wrapped around her finger.

Mason is called in and says he doesn’t want to make friends with Jeff. He doesn’t like him. But then Ella asks him to do it and he agrees. After he leaves, Ella pretends to wrap a string around her finger to show just how wrapped around her finger Mason is.

Has anyone ever had you wrapped around their finger? Is there anyone wrapped around your finger?
