Dinner, the Casino & Flamenco Dancing

“So, did you and Josephine have a good time last night?”

“Well, she took me to Columbia, a Spanish restaurant. The food was great. I had the Pollo Manchego and although it wasn’t as good as my grandmother’s, I thoroughly enjoyed it.”

“Was that all you enjoyed?” she muttered under her breath.

“What was that?”

“What else did you enjoy?”

“The White Chocolate Bread Pudding.”

“It sounds like you had a wonderful time.”

“I did.”

“Yes, and I’m sure it wasn’t just the food and dessert you enjoyed.”

“No?”

“No.”

“Actually, you’re right. I also enjoyed the Café Cesar with its distinctive flavor of Anis del Mono blended with Cuban coffee and topped with whipped cream.”

“Well, while you were enjoying your Pollo Manchego, Pudding and Café Cesar, I was busy studying for an upcoming test.”

“I’m sure you’ll ace it like you do with every test.”

“I hope so.”

“When’s the test?”

“On Thursday.”

He looked at her, surprised. “You spent Saturday night studying for a test which isn’t until Thursday?”

“I like to study in advance. What’s wrong with that?”

“Nothing, I guess. When I was in university, I would study a day or two before the test and that worked for me.”

“Well, I like to study days ahead. Anyway, I didn’t spend the entire evening studying.”

“What else did you do then?”

“I watched Netflix and did some reading. Then, I went to bed.”

“I guess you were sleeping when I got in because your light wasn’t on.”

“I wasn’t sleeping,” she informed him. “I was still awake when you got in.”

“Why didn’t you come and say goodnight to me, then?”

“I didn’t feel like getting up.”

“Oh. Well, if I had known that you were still awake, I would have come and said goodnight to you.”

“You came in after midnight.”

“Yes.”

“So, where did you and your date go after you left the restaurant?”

“We went to Seminole Hard Rock Casino where we spent some time and then, I took her home.”

“Well, it sounds like you two had a wonderful evening.”

“What’s up, Mall?”

“Nothing. Why?”

“Are you sure nothing’s bothering you?”

“What could be bothering me?”

“Oh, I forgot to mention that we were treated to a dazzling Flamenco show while we were at the restaurant.”

“How exciting for you.”

“Now, do I detect a note of sarcasm in your voice?”

“You can detect whatever you want,” she retorted.

“I wish you could have been there to see those Flamenco dancers.”

“I don’t think your girlfriend would have wanted me there.”

“Maybe you and I can go there for dinner another night so that you can see the show and enjoy the food–“

“I don’t think your girlfriend would like that–“

“Mall, about Josephine–“

“Excuse me. I’ve an exam to study for.” She turned and walked out of the room.
