Sample text

Mary Alice narrowed her eyes but decided to let it pass. On her last birthday, she had been sixty-six but had decided to start counting backwards. At last count, she’s sixty-four. Big difference. It reminds me of that commercial where they’re celebrating Great-grandmama’s one-hundredth birthday and one woman whispers cattily to another that Great-grandmama is really a hundred and one. ” “Well, of course, Mouse. ” Mary Alice got up, opened the refrigerator, and took out a pitcher of tea. ” I reached behind me and handed her two glasses.

The Mother Crane bit. ” Mitzi laughed. ” “We’ll see. Somehow I got the idea that Sunshine Barbie may not be such a pushover. ” “Then poor Ray. ” I managed to get Woofer into a standing position with a lot of sweet talk and shoving. “Look at that. ” “He’s fine,” I said. But when I got home, I let him come in the kitchen to drink a big bowl of water. While I went to shower, he stretched out over the air-conditioning vent. I knew it was totally unsanitary; dog dander drifted through the air like snow.

I, on the other hand, remove myself mentally from the situation. Sister describes my reaction as taking little trips. And I guess I do. After I put the soup in the refrigerator, I sat at a table that folded down from the wall and on which I assumed Meemaw and Sunshine had been playing checkers on a worn board. Some of the checkers were lost, and they had substituted corn and pebbles. I looked away from the sad unfinished game and thought about the white sale Sears was having and how it was a strange time to have a white sale which should be in January.
