Family Dinner Time (Photostory)
Debbie and her two kids are having dinner at Sashimi. They are joined by Debbie's younger sister.
"So what time is Patrick getting here?" (Debbie's sister)
"He just sent me a text saying he's on the way." (Debbie)
"Aren't you guys too old to go out on a date?" (Debbie's son)
In the next booth over, Kara has just arrived with Jolisa, to have dinner with her mother-in-law, and her sisters-in-law.
"Hello guys. I hope I'm not too late." (Kara)
"Hi grandma." (Jolisa)
"No, you're not that late. We just got our drinks and were looking over the menu. Awww, come to grandma." (Mother-in-law)
Melanie and Nicole are halfway through their dinner.
"So how did you do on your math test?" (Melanie)
"I think I did okay, but the teacher hasn't graded it yet." (Nicole)
At the front entrance, Halle and Diego have arrived and are waiting to be seated. The waitress spots them and heads their way. Apparently the restaurant is short staffed tonight.
"So are we going to set a date for our cruise?" (Diego)
"I didn't bring my planner, with me."
"Auntie, what are we going to do tonight?" (Kathryn)
"I thought we'd go to the movies." (Auntie)
"Yes, and we're going to pick something really scary." (Patrick, Jr.)
"Noooo. I don't like scary movies." (Kathryn)
The waitress leads Halle and Diego to their table.
(Sidenote: Both the waitress and Halle are standing without any aids. These are the third wave of fashionista bodies, I think.)
"And what have you been up to little lady? How's school?" (Grandma)
"Fine. I have two new friends." (Jolisa)
"What can I get you two to drink?" (Waitress)
"I'll have a white wine." (Halle)
"Can I just get a glass of water to start?" (Diego)
The restaurant owner peers at the door to see new guests have arrived. He's pretty miffed that the hostess for the night called in sick at the last minute. His daughter is coming in to help, but she won't be there for another half an hour.
The waitress heads to the front to tend to the new guests. She passes by Melanie's table.
Melanie is busy handling a work text that just came in. She doesn't even notice,
that Rod and Danielle have arrived. It doesn't take long for Rod to spot Melanie and Nicole.
"Melanie and Nicole are here." (Rod)
"And? You're not suggesting we leave, are you?" (Danielle)
"No, I was just stating a fact." (Rod)
"Mommy, mommy, that's Nicole. Can I go say hi?" (Julian)
