* I took the bus home yesterday and sat in front of Barbara and her niece. I couldn't hear what they were talking about but her niece did call a Chinese place for takeout.
"I would like an order of Moo Goo Gai Pain and a Ceasar salad. WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T HAVE SALADS!"
* Barbara's niece also took the van the next morning. Snippets of their conversation that I overheard:
"The only reason she's dating him is because he owns a hot tub."
"Auntie, I told you 18,000 times already, I like hardcover books."
* After Barbara and her niece got off the van, Christina turned to us in the back.
"So, what did she say about me today?"
Claire said she didn't say anything. Christina said that Barbara gave her crap when money was being handed to Charlie, which no one else seemed to have heard.
"I should get a discount for putting up with her."
When I left, Christina told me to say a prayer for her for dealing with Barbara. I told her that I'd do even better and light a candle for her at the Cathedral.
