The Slow and Savory Review
Its surprising how much one can pack into a day sometimes. Even in her advanced age, Brandy keeps busier than even her doctors advise her to, filling her days with trips to various meetings for societies, clubs, guilds, and even the occasional comity. So it came as quite a surprise to her when on Tuesday morning she checked her schedule book to find only one listing (she was to meet Bear Buttercup, who was in town, that evening to discuss his actress wife, Bambi's, next career move). "How can this be?" she wondered, "For goodness' sake! It's Fat Tuesday and the State of the Union is tonight and..." and then it occurred to her just what a special day it was, "Pancake Day." She instantly had no other choice but to spend her free time that morning on a little weekday brunch.
Slowly Brandy extracted herself from her seat with about $30 less in her pocket (most dishes were between $10 and $15, which seemed a little bit much to Brandy, but one can't argue with quality and deliciousness) and a whole free afternoon in front of her. "Maybe a quick walk around the block to shake off this meal," she thought, "And then, dare I say it, a second brunch!"
