Breakfast Time with Terrance and Racquel
It's Sunday morning, Terrance's favorite day of the week. It's the only day he is not running around conducting business.
Terrance has been up awhile reading the Sunday paper, The Washington Post.
"Are you kidding me? How did she pull that off?"
Racquel emerges from the nursery with baby Nichelle. She heads towards the sofa.
"Anything of interest in there? " (Racquel)
"Seems like Lady Jordan won the bid to build the new art gallery. There was some pretty steep competition for that project." (Terrance)
"I would love to me her one day. Maybe I could pick up some business pointers." (Racquel)
"I don't know. She might turn my adorable wife into a ruthless witch." (Terrance)
"Is that what you think of her?" (Racquel)
"No, but I wouldn't want to be married to her. (Terrance)
"Well this adorable wife is going to cook breakfast." (Racquel)
Racquel goes to put Shay down to play.
"This should keep you busy for a little while. Mommy will be right in the kitchen."
This is Shay's favorite toy.
She's pretty good at entertaining herself.
Racquel surveys the items in the fridge.
"Honey, what would you say to fresh fruit for breakfast? I found some wonderful raspberries and blueberries at the farmer's market." (Racquel)
"I would say that's fine as long as it comes with a side order of eggs and bacon." (Terrance)
"Honey, you are impossible. I am only trying to get you to eat healthier so you can stay with us longer." (Racquel)
"Taking away good food will not get me to stay here longer." (Terrance)
"You know what I mean." (Racquel)
Racquel pulls out the eggs, bacon, and potatoes. Recently she has become more health conscious and is trying to get Terrance on her bandwagon.
"Uh oh. We have a mover." (Terrance)
Shay has managed to turn herself over and is now in crawling position.
Terrance gets closer, intending to stop her in her tracks, but then he decides to let her explore a bit first.
"Breakfast is served." (Racquel)
Terrance scoops up Shay and heads to the kitchen.
"Is that all you are eating?" (Terrance)
"I'm sharing this with Shay. I have my protein shake, too." (Racquel)
Terrance is happy to see something a lot more appetizing on his plate. Eggs, bacon, and hash browns. Just like he likes it. Racquel intentionally left out the biscuits he normally gets, but he has yet to notice.
Right after Terrance starts eating, Racquel asks a question that has been on her mind for several months.
"Honey, what do you think about me expanding Ni'Chalets?" (Racquel)
Terrance pauses and continues to look at his plate.
"I was thinking about adding a kids department. Just think of all the extra business I would get by doing that. Not to mention all I would save on Shay's clothes." (Racquel)
"Please tell me you are kidding." (Terrance)
"Why would I kid about such a thing. I think it's a fabulous idea. Sounds like something Lady Jordan would do." (Racquel)
"What you don't think it's a good idea?" (Racquel)
"That's it. No. Why not? You're a good business man. How can you not see the potential there?" (Racquel)
"First of all, you haven't been in business long enough to establish yourself as a good risk. How is this expansion going to take place? There is no room at your current location to expand, which means you will have to find a new location. Do you know how much money it would take to get out of your current least?" (Terrance)
Sounds like it might get a little heated. We will check back with these two later.
Scenes from the next story. We are headed to Chang Realty, which is run by Sunni Chang.
"You got a walk-in this morning. He's waiting in the conference room." (Mia)
