Supper – Mystery Writer Style
so it seemed natural to find out what some of us would want to eat for our Last
garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus

chisme and I learned a lot about life from those parties.

Just when the servers thought my father had no room for more, he would ask for one last bowl of shrimp, “for dessert.”
