We made drinks… 

Two each to save a trip back.

We talked about the Sox. 

We talked about our jobs. 

We talked about our wives. 

We talked about our kids. 

We talked about our mortgages.

We talked about our acreage. 

We talked about our debt.

We talked about our 401Ks. 

We talked about……

I yawned, drained my drink, and turned to hide.

Then someone yelled…

“Honey, will you cut the cake?”
