This story is not currently available online.

I’ve had a long day with the sharks, and Audrey is exhausted after a basement workout.  It’s Time for Two time.  Bliss out with a drink, take stock, relate.  So we make the arrangements: Gabe shooed off to the neighbors, answering machine on duty, and Falafel has his kitty kibbles.

Aud puts together a tray: chips, salsa, a Miller and a Blue Mountain Spring Water, one frosty mug.  My thing, to keep glass in the freezer for that extra edge.
