for a quick lunch.
I would get an hour break on that day instead of the usual half-hour at best, and I'm only 5 minutes away from our place. Tamara starts work at 3 on Tuesdays.
We'd split a toasted cheese sandwich and have a cup of soup that she was kind enough to have ready when I got there. We'd talk about things and have a few laughs and it was fun. Less than an hour goes by fast but that added to the excitement. We'd been doing that for about a year.
A couple of Tuesdays ago, I got in, loosened my tie and called out hello. Tamara came in and smiled and asked me how I was and brought lunch over and put it on the table in front of me. I noticed where she only had on a shirt and shorts. She leaned over with her shirt open and gave me a very intense look.
"It's really hot," she said.
"Uh, oh. You mean the soup," I said—a little startled.
"No," she replied.
We have a new tradition: I take an hour and a half for lunch on Tuesdays; Tamara still makes it to work on time, though sometimes she has to hurry; we've learned to like cold toasted cheese sandwiches and soup.
The time goes by fast but that adds to the excitement.
