I just wanted to be sure to hear everything in case the people across the highway didn’t hear it. This man was loud. He got Mama(the great grandmother ) checked in and then took a seat The children were restless. The woman I assume was their mother asked Granddaddy how long he thought it would be. He didn’t know. The aunt interjects that these people take forever. Then the mother two children say, “Well, hell, we should just go ahead and get started. “ With that, the aunt opens the cake box, pulls out a birthday cake and arranges two chairs in such a way the seat made a large enough surface.
I was in an ER waiting room with a friend. He was sure he had broken his ankle. I had ice packs and was providing the appropriate amount of babying and making sure the ankle was elevated. And in walks a family. Let me rephrases that. A FAMILY – mama, daddy, sister, brother (both under twelve I would guess), Grandmama and granddaddy. And right on their heels was an ambulance with great grandmama. She was taken straight back but not before she was heard to shout, “Now don’t you all start without me.” And then entered another adult female who I will assume was an aunt. She is carrying a cooler with what is obviously a bakery box balanced on it.
