“Mimosas!” Stacy squealed as she walked into the breakfast nook. ”What’s the special occasion, honey?”
Her husband Curt handed her a glass. ”Just celebrating how lucky I am to have such a lovely wife.”
They toasted, kissed, and sat at the table, which was festooned with fresh fruit and cinnamon rolls. ”This makes me feel so much better,” Stacy said. ”I had a horrible nightmare just before I woke up.”
“What was it about?” Curt asked, glancing at his phone.
“Well… sort of a big Halloween party with lots of people. Some I knew and some I didn’t. It was chaotic, in a strange house with lots of rooms. You were disguised as a demon who was trying to get me to eat a poisoned apple, but I refused to taste it.”
“Hmm,” Curt murmured as he began to type on his phone while Stacy prattled on.
“Yes, and my boss was there and coworkers from my last job and people from high school and my family… even my grandma! I saw the president too. Oh, and there was a sexy girl demon I didn’t know who kept following you around. Her name was Melissa.”
Curt smiled at his phone. “Marissa.”
