The book I am currently reading is On Strike for Christmas by Sheila Roberts.
Still, a woman only got to eat pumpkin pie once a year. And now that she was Menopause Mama, coping with hot flashes and mood swings, she ought to be allowed a few small pleasures. Anyway, she didn't look all that bad naked. So that meant it had to be the clothes that were making her look fat. Note to self: Find some non-bulky winter sweaters.
She picked up the plate again. "One more bite for the road," she decided and forked up another mouthful.
"Why not?" Lonnie agreed. "You've got a designated driver."
The designated driver gave his wife another pleading look.
Joy took one last quick bite. Rushing through pumpkin pie-it was a crime. She set down the plate, then brushed past Bob and went downstairs to the split-level's lower floor, dubbed the party room.
