Chinky By The Ramada

Last night, Eddie and I went to my brother's house for dinner. While we were all sitting in the living room, sipping wine and chatting, Eddie said "What's for dinner?"

My brother looked at him and said, "Whatever you feel like going to get." (I neglected to tell Ed that we were getting take-out.)

I offered to cook but my sister-in-law wanted Chinky, so after touring the pool area where my brother is building a "ramada" the size of a freakin' house, us girls reluctantly left to get the food while the boys bonded over PlayStation.

My sister-in-law made one last ditch effort to get out of having to go get the food by saying, "You shouldn't let girls go out alone at night."

My brother responded, "Why not???"

"Well, it's just not a good idea."

My brother said, "Nice try. Number one; we don't live in Compton. Number two; the Chinese place is 2 miles away and number three; no one would mess with Salena."

Can't argue with that.
