MK and Colleen get reacquainted while working at different stores in a bankrupt mall.
Way back, the women went to Catholic school together and collaborated on racy letters to a soldier in Vietnam who thought they were much older than seventh graders â€” a ruse that typifies later shenanigans, usually brought on by red-headed Colleen, a self-proclaimed 'Celtic Warrior'.

Christopher statue glued to the dash. The glow-in-the-dark icon guides them past the farm debris, mine ruins, and fracking waste of the northern brow of Appalachia.
