MLMM Photo Challenge — The County Fair

“Yes, it was a boisterous day, and quite honestly, I’m exhausted,” Dan said to his wife. “It’s a miracle after all that craziness that I can still walk.”

“I know, honey,” Dorothy said to her husband, “but the grandkids had a field day at the county fair. Did you hear their rendition of ‘Saturday in the Park’? They’re so adorable.”

“Maybe so,” Dan said, “but there seems to be an inextricable link between spending time with our grandkids and my aching sacroiliac.”

“Go sit down on your easy chair, old man,” Dorothy said. “I’ll turn on the gas fireplace, go fix you a cup of hot chocolate with a shot of Baileys Irish Cream, and we can sit and watch reruns of ‘Law & Order.’ I’ll bet you’ll be snoring away in no time.”

Dorothy kissed her husband on the forehead, turned on the TV, and went to the kitchen to make him his cup of hot chocolate. She figured the odds were 50/50 that he’d be asleep by the time she came back to the living room. Which would suit her fine.

She put a little extra Baileys in the hot chocolate.

    Smooth inclusions, Fan. Congrats!
    My Beloved Sandra always orders a KGB coffee (Kahlua, Baileys, Grand Mariner), but I’m not much of a Bailys fan, so I always order just a KG (ie cagey). Her Grandkids are grown, so if we go anywhere with any kids these days, it’s the Great-Grands.
