Some business took me to Mobile for a couple of days at the beginning of the week, and so I was thrilled to see my daughters, G. and C., one night over supper. They are well and happy . . . and, um, well, it's one thing to know your daughter has been driving by herself for a couple of months, but quite another to actually see her doing it.
This exchange took place after our waitress took our orders:
Me: I miss hearing Southern accents.
C: Hearing them makes me hungry.
