Excerpt of Seattle Delight
Charly saw her parents and Lisa and made her way over to their table. She sat down feeling a bit glamorous and sexy – not that she wanted to feel sexy in front of her parents. Ew!
Seated between her parents Charly looked for the waiter. A glass of wine was just what she needed to add a little natural glow to her cheeks.
“For heaven’s sake, what are you looking for?” her mother asked, as she sat primly in the high-back armchair.
“The waiter, I’d like a glass of wine.” Charly replied.
“Charly honey–we are in one of the finest restaurants in Seattle, please show some decorum and manners, for me.”
“Sorry. But you each have a drink,” she replied somewhat defensively.
Josie sat forward, “Yes dear, but we got here at seven – you did not. So, you’ll have to wait for your drink until the waiter comes by.”
“Hey, it was seven by my clock when I parked the car.”
“Then your clock is off – my dear. You really should have all your time pieces synchronized.” Her mother said with a smile and a wink.
Her dad didn’t say anything. He just listened and grunted periodically, which left everyone wondering whose side he was on. Then he started sniffing the air around him. “Do any of you smell that?”
