FatLand: The Early Days – 26

“Guess what!” Charla burst into the restaurant as Angela was supervising the crafting of Belgian waffles with strawberries and double cream.

“What? Angela asked.

“She’s coming.”

“By that,” Angela said, “I take it you mean Margaret is coming?”

“Yes.”

“When?”

“In a couple of weeks. She said she had to get everything cleared up first.”

“Where will she be staying?”

“In the center of town. She likes urban living, she said.”

“We don’t have much of a center yet,” Angela observed. “I guess we should do something about it. Centers need stores and restaurants.”

“And life and movement.”

“I think we need a meeting about this,” Angela said.

“Yes,” Charla agreed. She reached for a strawberry. Angela took one as well.

“Let’s call it as soon as the waffles are done,” Angela said.

“Good way to start a meeting.”

“That’s the idea.”
