Conversation with Mother as we are waiting for the check at Clyde’s restaurant in the nation’s Capitol:
Thing 1: maybe we should dine and dash?
Radish: the older I get, the more often I do!
Laughter all around.
Me (perplexed): Really? You have turned to a life of crime in your advancing age? What’s going on with that? Where was the last time you dined and dashed?
Radish: Donna and Jimmy’s. Before that, the Bissetts.
Ha, ha. I should have known. She likes to go to bed early.
