Late Lunch at McD's
Monica has stopped by McDonald's to grab a cup of coffee. She has a meeting with the banker to discuss the loan for the doggie daycare she is planning to open.
"That will be $1.38."
"Okay. I think I may have the exact change." (Monica)
"Mommy, can we eat now?" (Chad)
"As soon as Ciana gets here, we can eat." (Lisa)
"Has anyone seen Quentin? I wanted to invite him, but I haven't seen him for a couple of days." (Jasmine)
"I'm sure he's probably with his new girlfriend." (Kim)
"Ooh, do I detect a little jealousy?" (Carmen)
"Jealous? No. I just think he needs to stop treating his friends like they don't exist. We were here long before she showed up." (Jasmine)
"Is that why we didn't see you for a whole month when you met David last summer?" (Kim)
"Oh, let's not bring up that loser." (Jasmine)
Leslie and the kids finally arrive.
Monica gets her coffee and heads to the bank. She is sporting a new trench coat she picked up from Ni'Chalet's boutique that was designed by the local fashion designer, Debbie. Sidenote: She loves her new Disney body.
"Sorry we are a little late. Had to stop by the post office and they were moving ultra slow today. Then we had to made an emergency potty stop. Have you been waiting long?" (Leslie)
"About 10 mins. But it's been good to just sit and get out of that rain. What is going on with our weather? It's not like us to have rain steadily for a whole week." (Lisa)
"Speak of the devil. There's Quentin now." (Kim)
"Is he alone, or with her?" (Jasmine)
"Her is definitely with him." (Kim)
The other girls start laughing. Jasmine is not amused.
"What would you like?" (Quentin)
"I'll have the number 4." (Deidre)
"We'll have a number 4 and a number 2." (Quentin)
"That will be $9.75." (Cashier)
"Okay. We'll be back in a minute to pick it up." (Quentin to cashier)
"Hey, let's go say hi to my friends." (Quentin to Deidre)
"Stick Chad over here while you go get their lunch." (Leslie)
"What would you like?" (Lisa)
"Nothing. I am trying to lose about 5 lbs. Squeezing into that bridesmaid dress made me realize I have put on a few pounds." (Leslie)
"Maybe you're pregnant." (Lisa)
"No! I am definitely NOT pregnant." (Leslie)
"Well hello ladies. You guys remember Deidre." (Quentin)
All the ladies say hello, except Jasmine.
"Mommy, I think the baby is crying." (Ciana)
"No she's not. She is just cooinng. (Leslie)
"Two kid meals. That's $6.55." (Cashier)
"So has anyone heard from Danielle?" (Lisa)
"They are due back today. I can't wait to talk to her. I still don't know what happened at the reception. What a mess." (Leslie)
"Well, I need to thank her. Ever since the wedding, Charles has been in rare form. That wedding did something to him." (Lisa)
"Girl, I was thinking the same thing about David. Shoot, I need to make sure we are attending a wedding, somewhere, at least once every couple of months. I need to keep this thing going." (Lisa)
She and Lisa both start laughing.
"Is it me, or is she a little too old for him?" (Jasmine)
"Oh you are so wrong for that." (Angelica)
"I would love to stay and chat with you ladies, but one of us has to go study." (Kim)
"Make that two of us. I'm headed out too. I have to go finish my English paper." (Faith)
"Mommy I think the baby is crying now." (Ciana)
"I think you are right." (Leslie)
"Okay, Chelsea. mommy's coming. Chad, you sit over here and finish eating." (Lisa)
Chelsea stops crying the moment Lisa picks her up.
"Chad, please don't get in her seat." (Lisa)
Lisa and Leslie continue chatting while the kids eat. It's always nice getting together with friends. The college kids have all left and headed back to campus.
