LMM 561: To Go

Claimer: I do hereby claim all rights and responsibility for the characters in this series of vignettes because the Amaranthine Saga is mine. (Which means I should probably behave myself since anything I say or do could be taken as canon.) Indulge the lot of us, especially the one who’s having fun.

To Go

“Lord,” Jacques drawled reverently. Swifty’s produced hot pastrami sandwiches that required the removing of one’s jacket and the rolling up of one’s sleeves. “Pure decadence.”  

“I know, right?” Harrison opened two more bottles of beer. “Half the county points to Swifty’s as their guilty pleasure.”

“What does the other half do for fun?”

Harrison didn’t even hesitate. “Gert’s Pies.”

“Are these sublime pies also sold out of the back of a petrol station?”

“Nooo, but her husband runs the bait shop next door. Do you like fishing?”

Jacques sincerely doubted it, but no matter. “My good man, it’s a date.”
