A FRIEND IN NEED"What's the matter, Jan," Alana asked while maneuvering her new SUV through suburban traffic, "you haven't said three words since we left home, and if I didn't know better I'd say that you look a little flushed!?!" Lost in though, Jan didn't even acknowledge Alana's question until she felt her friend give her a poke in the ribs and repeat her question!!! "Uh, oh sorry, I wasn't paying attention," Jan replied, "I was just thinking!!!" "Thinking," she shot back, "about what, for god's sakes, we're two women of age and we're going shopping using our husband's money, now tell me, what in the heck could be better than that!?!" Jan threw her head back and gave a short laugh but then replied staidly, "Well, I guess I am a little bit in the dumps, Hank had to leave the house early today and I just miss him that's all!!!" They drove in silence for a minute or so until Alana offered, "So you missed out on your morning sugar, huh!?!" Jan looked over at her friend and just rolled her eyes before saying, "You're incorrigible, do you know that!?!" Alana made a show of acting hurt and answered, "Me, what ever are you talking about, all I did was make a perfectly reasonable observation, nothing more or nothing less, that's all!!!"
