Bette gathered around her friends in a corner of the living room, laughing with the women who were so close to her heart. Angelica’s first birthday party was well underway, everyone present except for one man in particular who promised he’d be there. Well, him and the guest of honor of course.
“She’s still sleeping” Tina said as she made her way into the living room and over to the group. “At this rate, she’s going to sleep through her entire party”
“Well, I guess it won’t be a total loss” Alice said as she stirred the ice in her drink, “I’m sure you two more than enjoyed her day for her”
Bette nearly spit out her drink with a laugh, “What?”
Tina pressed her lips together, a flush creeping up her neck as the rest of the group looked at Alice with both amusement and disbelief. As long as they all knew her, she was still able to surprise them with the things that flew out of her mouth.
“What? That was totally appropriate” Alice defended, her arms out as she shrugged innocently. She laughed when she continued to receive the same looks, “Come on, you all saw the way Bette answered the door. Her makeup was all over the place”
“Hey Tina, what did you put on top of the pigs in a blanket?” Shane asked as she examined the piece of food in her hands, wanting to save her friends the embarrassment of dealing with her blunt friend. “It’s really good”
“I melted some butter and stirred in some garlic then just kinda brushed it on top of each one”
Alice watched as her friends suddenly became engaged in a seemingly interesting conversation about food, a wide smile spreading across her face. She knew what they were doing and had no plans to let up.
“So no one is going to acknowledge the fact that Bette and Tina were playing hide the taco literally minutes before we got here”
“Hide the taco?” Bette laughed out loud as Tina just stared at Alice, her mouth open in a smile.
“Oh no, I can’t listen to this” Kit laughed as she covered her ears, “I don’t want to hear about my baby sis or her taco”
