I had just brought Mrs. A. her dessert to finish off her meal. As I was wiping off a nearby table, I asked her if she had had a good day today. She assured me that, yes, she had. It had been so very relaxing and she had spent most of the day reading.
I asked her what she had been reading and she mentioned something about a guarded tower and a queen.
"How exciting," I said.
"Oh, yes. It is. In fact, when I came down for dinner, they were just about ready to ..."
and she drops her voice to a whisper and leans over her strawberries
Serving dinner always brings the unexpected. Always. ;)
In other non related news, the boy and I have decided that while we are very fond of each other, it is not going to work. A successful courtship - we know that we are not meant for each other. Of course this would happen right as I decide to write about it, but that's ok.
My life can also be exciting. ;)
