The Baby Shower
“Mama is one of those annoying dinner guests who show up early to help and drives the hostess nuts trying to find something for her to do. Papa and I have managed to get her to come only fifteen minutes early instead of the forty-five she used to insist on.”
Jack cracked up.
“Shit, there are a lot of people here,” he told Carlo in passing.
“Watch your mouth, caro, from now on we have little ears that learn naughty words first.” As Jack had been an only child, this was news to him.
Everyone from Carlo’s office came, all of the soccer team, Jack’s police buddies, and all the bartenders and waiters from the bar who liked Jack because he helped save one of their own.
Jason and Zach contributed to pay for the caterer and refused Carlo’s attempt to pay for the extra guests. “It’s a buffet, so we bought some extra shrimp. No big deal,” Bobby said.
Bobby and Keith bought them one for each of their cars and one for Hannah’s.
“I researched the safety ratings and found from several sources that they were the safest and easiest to install. It had the highest numbers and upon examination, I thought that Bella would be the most comfortable in this model,” Bobby said definitively.
Knowing how hung up Bobby was on auto safety after his parents’ deaths, Jack and Carlo listened to his sales pitch and nodded in all the appropriate places.
“Why three?” Jack asked. “Isn’t three excessive?”
“Where do you put the baby while you’re changing the seat out from one car to another?” Bobby asked them when he explained why he got three. “It certainly wasn’t to save you two from exercise,” Bobby said with his usual snark.
Jack and Carlo watched as Bobby left them, apparently happy to have been able to deliver his safety first lecture. Jack and Carlo were blissful that they wouldn’t have to drag that thing from one car to another and constantly figure out how to reinstall it. Carlo examined it carefully. “Only my cousin Enzo would appreciate all the work involved in designing that monster.”
“He’s the engineer, right?”
“Yeah, Bobby bought us a model so sturdy it could likely keep a baby alligator strapped in and comfortable.”
