After heading down the highway a bit, Matt pulls into the parking lot of a busy little café. The sign out front has a woman on it holding…something.
After ordering, paying, and waiting a bit, Matt hands her a large drink with a little mountain of fluffy white stuff on top, with stripes of brown dripping down the mountainsides.
“Here, got you extra whipped cream and lots of car’mul on top, just the way you like it.”
Missy takes a lick of the whipped cream and her eyes go wide. “Oh!”
“Well, yer not supposed to lick it like an ice-cream cone. Sip it.”
She does and then slaps her hand on the table.
“Missy! You okay?”
“Oh, my! How can you beings ever complain about anything?”
“How’s that now?”
“Nothing.” She takes another sip and moans again. Several customers seated nearby look over at her.
“Missy, sweetheart, can you calm yourself a bit?”
She takes a bite of the round treat on a stick he’d set down by her. The moans escalate.
“Geez,” Matt says, trying to sink farther into his seat, “I feel like I’m straight out of When Harry Met Sally.”
“Who’s Harry? Who’s Sally?”
“The main characters in one of yer favorite movies. You made me watch it at least half a dozen times.”
She takes another sip and bite. The moans escalate even more. By this time everyone in the café is looking at her.
“Missy! Perhaps we should eat these in the car.”
“Wherever you want!”
The customers in the café receive one more rendition of “Ohhhhhhhh!” as Matt leads her out the door and she takes another sip of her drink. She climbs into the truck as he walks around to the driver’s side.
Okay, maybe it’s not thaaaat bad here.
