PS, I Love You
A conversation over dinner. (Hamburgers and Campbellís tomato soup, for the record
Ol Doc Hawk: You realize you have been an intolerable brat lately?
Me: Sorry, I donít mean to be.
ODH: ĎSorryí is just a word. Change your behavior, because you are making Mike miserable.
Me: Iím sorry
ODH gives me that withering laser look and we slurp some more soup. Then he smiles at me and itís like the sun coming out in February
ODH: Iím taking tomorrow afternoon off and I thought we could fly out to Palm Springs and play some golf. Mom said she would watch Maria
Me: (dazed and confused) This is my punishment for my bad behavior? Banished to Palm Springs?
ODH: Consider that it separates you and Mike for 3 days. He and Rianne can work out whatever they have and, more important, I get to play some golf.
Score! PS is filled with pretty boys, awesome scenery, good Mexican food and world class golf.*(amusing PS Story)
Me: No doubt you have already bought tickets, made reservations and got tee times. Did Michael offer to finance the whole trip?
ODH: No, but itís a thought. So, you in?
Me: Hell ya, Iím in. I like the way you punish.
ODH: (glancing at the teevee that Maria is watching in the other room) Ooooh look, Colby and Ethan are conspiring against Rich.
*Amusing PS Story
Last time we were there it was in August and 120 in the shade. Iíve always said I wanted to go Ďin seasoní We stayed at one of those all boys, clothing optional resorts. Upon checking in, we were told that the resort offered a Ď1% per inchí room discount. Whip it out, get it up, get measured and save, save, save! Hawk, who can do math in his head, realizes he got around $70 worth of savings right there in his jeans and accepts the offer. It was an interesting weekend
