Starting to Get Busy (Photostory)
Danielle heads to the local grocery store, Jordan's. Twice a year, the local fire department does an inspection. Have you ever noticed how cute firemen tend to be? It's no different here in Morristown. The fireman on duty today is Manwell.
Manwell is finishing up with Roy, the store manager.
"Everything is in tip-top shape. I left a copy of the report on your desk." (Manwell)
"Thanks, man. We appreciate all your hard work." (Roy)
"I'll see you in six months." (Manwell)
Adele is there shopping. She and the family have been out of town for the past three months dealing with family issues in Chicago.
Lena and Allen Jr are there, and Monica has just arrived. She is just popping in to get a few veggies.
Danielle finally arrives. She grabs a basket and tries to remember what is on her list. It's not like her to forget her list at home, but as her belly grows, her memory seems to get worse.
"Chad, it's getting busy in here. I'm going to be on the floor and in the back. If you get more than three people in the line, call me over the intercom, and I will come help." (Roy)
"That looks like Adele. I thought she was still out of town." (Danielle)
"Danielle. Look at you! Last time I saw you, you were barely showing. Now you are glowing all over." (Adele)
"Is that your polite way of saying, 'dang girl, you sure are big.'" (Danielle)
They both start laughing.
"Of course not. You look wonderful." (Adele)
Sydney peers through at Danielle as the ladies continue to talk.
"So when did you guys get back?" (Danielle)
"Just this morning, and there is nothing to eat in the house, so I had to come straight here." (Adele)
:"Mommy, I want out." (Sydney)
Monica is picking out her veggies. She's doing a cleanse for the next three days, and she wants to have all her supplies in hand before she begins.
Lena approaches the other side of the vegetable bin and the two ladies greet each other.
"Oh my. Look at her. Just as cute as ever. Hey Sydney." (Danielle)
"Have you guys found out what you are having yet?" (Adele)
"The doctor wrote the sex of the baby on a piece of paper, but we haven't looked at it yet. I was considering having one of those parties where you find out the sex with friends and family. I also considered just waiting and being surprised." (Danielle)
"If you wait much longer, the baby is going to be here." (Adele)
Again that ladies start laughing.
At the store entrance, another familiar face enters Jordan to do a little shopping. It's Melanie. Hmmm. I wonder how this is going to play out?
