Starting a few paragraphs down from last week, Viv gets an unexpected phone call from her mother:

Cookie Crisp cereal from the side

Vivian Leigh Mitchell, you are on your way to The Elegant Crumb, right?”

Viv swallowed. “No, I’m in my kitchen having Honey Fros—having breakf—having an early lunch.”

“No, you’re meeting Kirsten and David for their wedding cake tasting.”

She set down her spoon.  “The tasting is next week.”

It’s today.”

“It can’t be today.“  


Poor Viv isn’t having the best morning . . .

It was difficult to choose eight sentences this week.  I’d chose a snippet, decide to edit it a little and end up adding new stuff that improved it, but also made the potential passage just a little too long.

I know, I know—rough problem to have.  But I really wanted to share the bit about Uncle Josh’s food allergies to see if it was funny, or just morbid.  Then again, if I have to ask . . .

And no, I have no idea why most of my snippets have centered around food lately.  Weird.
