Just Among Friends
“Are you laughing at me?”
“Well, you are the one swooning like a school girl over yellow orchids. They are not even roses.” Juanita says as she sits at the table drinking her coffee, and watching her best friend, Vernice, place the orchids in a vase.
“Roses are overrated. I’d rather have an orchid any day.”
“Umm… Hmmm…..” Juanita says peering over her mug.
“You’re enjoying this aren’t you?” Vernice says as she eyes her friend while arranging the flowers.
“I’m enjoying watching you squirm. Ms. We’re just friends. I’m too old for a serious relationship, you said. You made it sound like you had one foot in the grave. And now you are sprinting around like a teenager”
“I am not.” Vernice’s cell phone rings. She answers in a high pitch voice, and her face lights up.
“Hello Henry. Yes, I love the orchids.”
Juanita bursts out laughing.
