“Which one do you think I should get him?” Darryl asked his girlfriend.
Diane shrugged. “How should I know?” she asked. “I’ve only met your father that one time.”
“There are the ones with the floral patterns that say ‘Islander’ on them,” Darryl said, “or the one that says ‘Aloha’ on it. Do you think he’d like one of those?”
“They’re nice,” Diane said.
“Maybe he’d prefer one of the other ones with the straw weave on the front,” Darryl said.
“Darryl,” Diane said, “Whatever you decide, I think he’ll be happy just knowing that you were thinking about him.”
