Another Cup of Tea

“I’m in a fowl mood,” Bryan said as he returned to the table in the all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet with his plate filled with an assortment of chicken prepared in a variety of ways ranging from fried wings to Chinese chicken and broccoli.

Linda laughed as she counted the variety. “I didn’t know you were so hungry,” she quipped.

“Round one. I’ve already plotted my next tour.”

“Are you trying to get your money’s worth or simply planning on not eating for the next month?”

Bryan gave her a look and continued eating without comment, but he watched as Linda finished her first plate and retrieved a second, piled high with an assortment of Chinese delicacies.

Bryan had gotten his second plate as he’d said, finished eating and continued to watch Linda as she got a third plate-full.

“That’s enough for me,” Bryan stated and poured a cup of tea for each of them.

“Not me,” Linda announced. “Aren’t you having dessert?”

“Are you trying to get your money’s worth or simply planning on not eating for the next month?”

“There’s always room for dessert.” Linda laughed as she headed for the dessert table.

Bryan laughed and poured himself another cup of tea.
