1386. Groceries for dinner
© Bruce Goodman 25 August 2018

“And so, darling,” said Dinah to her husband, Pete, as she was about to leave for town, “what would you like for dinner tonight?”

“Chicken hearts,” said Pete. Pete loved chicken hearts. Dinah hated chicken hearts. She knew he said that on purpose to annoy her.

“And take the dog with you in the car,” said Pete, “he’s getting cabin fever with all this bad weather we’re having.”

Dinah hated having to take the dog in the car when she went shopping. It prevented her from quietly shopping for hours in the big shops. Probably Pete had done it on purpose, to stop her squandering both time and money.

So that was two things Dinah hated – chicken hearts and taking the dog in the car.

Later, driving home, Dinah conceived and implemented a delightful plan.
