123. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Monday, January 1st, 5:00pm
Yvonne and Quinn


Quinn: Are you nervous?

Yvonne: Of course. It’s not every day I get to tell my parents I’m pregnant over turkey dinner.

Quinn: Well, we were going to have to tell them eventually.

Yvonne: (stares at him) Do you have any idea how hard it’s going to be telling my mother she’s going to be a grandmother? She’ll probably drop dead in the stuffing.

Quinn: She’s really that obsessed about getting old?

Yvonne: You’ve met my mother, right?

Quinn: Yeah. Do you want me to tell your dad and then he can tell her after we’ve left?

Yvonne: That’s the coward’s way out.

They stare at each other for three seconds.

Both: Let’s do it.


Next stop: Tuesday, January 2nd, 7:00pm

Just Jot It Jan. 1 – Spider

I need eight arms today. Or four arms and four legs. I’m entertaining a party of ten for dinner tonight; turkey’s in the oven, potatoes are being peeled by my lovely best friend, John, and I’m down with an upset stomach. Thing is, I want to eat. I feel as though only food is going to settle my stomach, so I’m going to enjoy it when it’s ready.

Having said that, is this holiday season ever going to end? Am I the only one who feels like it’s gone on forever? One more week of holidays from school for Alex and then I’m free. I’m free!!

I’m sure you’ll hear all about it when the time comes.

Okay, off to look for the gravy. I know there’s some around here somewhere…
