As I told Ronnie in my comments yesterday, the trip got off to a rocky start. It normally takes five hours to get from home to here. Had that worked out we would have arrived around seven thirty PM. But less that an hour from home we ran into a nearly three hour traffic jam. NOT FUN! We finally got here at ten forty-five only to find that they had our reservations for June 28th and they had all ready charged a ‘no show’ charge to my credit card.
Thankfully they had plenty of rooms and the guy at the desk was a really nice guy. He didn’t even put us in the system – which would have added more fees and taxes. We’ll just pay what was all ready charged to us for the no show and call it even.
Now back to Mollie – she was bored during the long traffic jam so I told her she could read those three chapters I gave her and she did just that. I could hardly keep my eyes on the road for glancing to see where she was. Good thing we were going less than a mile an hour.
Her only comment when she finished was, ‘Well, now I need more.’ I laughed and told her she could buy it in December. I waited a while and said ‘Your aunt said she like Cassie, but she didn’t think much of Tom. Do you agree?’
She said, ‘Well, like I said, I need to read more. I’m not sure I like that he spanked her since she had that crappy husband before.’
I told her that they were still happily married forty years later and that he still spanks her. But she didn’t say much more. I’m going to send her the piece where Cassie explains why this works in their marriage. But I’m not going to say much more about it now. Questions will come up a few at the time and I’ll answer as she asks them. But all and all I’m pretty happy with her response. She read a little, and didn't she leap from the car and go screaming into the night. What more could I ask for?
