A Scene with My 6th Grade Detectives

Thomas and Evie arrived at Diekman’s drug store about 2:30pm. “Come on Evie let’s get something to drink and wait inside for Char.”

“Now that is what I call super fantastic idea. We better not talk about the case until the charming and brilliant Chief Detective arrives.”

The soda counter waitress asks Thomas, “What would you like?”

“I’ll have a root beer float with root beer ice cream. Do you know what you want Evie.”

“Certainly my adventurous Mr. Eagle Eye. I’ll have a medium sized vanilla sarsaparilla with a red maraschino cherry.”

“You’ve got to be kidding Fluffy.”

“Thomas, please don’t start calling me that. You know I don’t like it.”

“Okay Evie, I’ll be nice.”

Charlotte arrives as the drinks are served. “Make mine a medium diet Pepsi please.” When the waitress left Charlotte asks, “Was your trip to the bank successful?”

Comment: These drinks sound pretty good ... for a hot day like today (5/17/08).

Cute line about, "Please don't call me Fluffy!"

I hope you use "Fluffy" more often. And, I can't wait to hear or read more.
