“Okay then.” Angie is excited about her parents getting back together. “Mama, when do you think you’ll move back?”
“Oh, um…”Tina tries to refocus after Bette’s admission and slides back ontothe couch. “I have a few weeks left in production once I get back to Toronto next week. I have another appointment to look at other rentals tomorrow actually.”
“So you’ll be back here before Christmas?”
“Yes, definitely before the holidays.” Tina looks between Angie and Bette. “I can’t wait to spend the holidays with you two. I should be able to wrap the production up before the Thanksgiving holiday.”
“So you would be here for Thanksgiving and that weekend?” Angie wants to know.
“Well yeah.” Tina turns back to Bette. “If I get an invite.”
“Oh please Tina.” Bette smiles.“Like you wouldn’t be here if you could. Of course you’re invited. Right Boo?”
“As long as we don’t eat Chinese again for Thanksgiving dinner.” Angie’s eyes sparkle with mischief.
Bette tries to hide her laugh behind her hand as she brings it to cover her mouth. Angie had hit that proverbial nail on the head.
“Hey,” Tina looks around at Angie with shock on her face. “That happened one time young lady.”
“Well,” Bette tries to control her laughter, “it made enough of an impression that she’s never forgotten it.”
“I know I’m into science.” Angie does the classic move with cupping her chin with her hand in thought.
“But isn’t purple an unnatural color for a cooked turkey?”
“Angie!” Tina can’t believe her daughter called her out on her cooking.
Angie and Bette erupt in laughter.
“Okay, okay, it was pretty bad. “ Tina can’t help to laugh along with her family.
They share a group hug, but Tina can’t resist telling them.
“So, you two are cooking dinner this year. I’ll just be the guest.”
“Cool.” Angie says, clearly excited to help her Mom.
“And no take out Porter.” Tina warns Bette.
“Won’t dream of it.” Bette ruffles the hair of the two most important people in her life. “You have our word. Right Ang?”
