The Dreaming – Installment #24

The Dreaming

“It’s lovely to meet you, Joe.  I’m Dana Carapelli.  The kids call me Mrs. C.”  She pushed hair off her face and held out a hand to shake.  “I’ll get Carter for you. Have you eaten? We have food if you’re hungry.”

She was excited at the idea of an adult test subject.  Maybe the lonely orange chili would have a fan before the night was over.

“I’m starving.  Normally I wouldn’t want to impose but we’re still getting settled in at our place and I don’t want another burger.”  He followed her into the kitchen.  “It smells incredible in here.”

“Just a minute.”  She peered through the peep hole at the unfamiliar man on her front porch holding a cowboy hat in his hand.  He must be the new guy’s dad.

“Hello,” she smiled, thinking unflattering things about what she must look like after a full day in the kitchen.  He, on the other hand, looked tired and smelled wonderful.

“I’m Joe.  I’m here to pick up Carter.”  Joe shifted his weight, hoping to look casual while he tried not to notice how gorgeous she was.

Half an hour later the table was considerably lighter and she had a lot of notes on the latest versions of her recipes.  She relaxed for the first time in hours.

She heard the doorbell ring and listened to see if Jason was going to get it.

She was getting it.

     A new face smiled at her uncertainly as he looked at all the options on the table.

“I’m Dana,” she smiled to welcome him.  “Jason’s mom.  Please help yourself to anything you like. You’re doing me a favor by eating it.”

“Yeah, Carter, eat up man.  We do this every week.”  Jeremy, Jason’s best friend since third grade told him while tasting a roasted vegetable infused rice.  “Good one, Mrs. C.”

“I’m glad.  I still remember eating too much spaghetti and peanut butter in college.  It doesn’t always have to be that tight.”

Brittany waved a last cheery goodbye and let herself out.

Jason and his friends arrived with their reliable appetites.  Dana watched them move down the table, loading their plates, passing up the questionable looking butternut squash chili she knew tasted great.

Brittany collected her food and payment, taking a last look over everything before she took off.  “Should I come by early next Wednesday to clean the house?”

Dana nodded.  “That’s perfect for me.  Just plan to do the kitchen last.  I’ll be around the whole day, so just come over when it’s convenient for you.  Thanks, Brittany.  It’s so much easier with your help.”

“Thank you, Dana.  And thanks for telling your friend about me.  She hired me so now I have three houses.  That’s all I need to round out my expenses.”

Brittany arrived as she put the last test batch in the freezer for the notes on which dishes would freeze well. Brittany was her on-call maid for days like this. The kitchen was destroyed. Brittany was happy to clean it for $10.00 an hour and food to take with her.

They sat together at the table tasting the chocolate mint cheesecake she had finally nailed. Brittany was making sounds of pleasure and licking her fork for nonexistent crumbs, saving her a precious question.

Where did that come from?
