Junior denied her accusation. "You're crazy. How could I know? Look at you! How could I possibly know?"

"I've got an obvious Adam's apple, don't I?" she shrieked.

Yes she did, she had one...

Later, at home, he gargled until he had drained half a bottle of mint-flavored mouthwash, took the longest shower of his life, and then used the other half of the mouthwash.

He’d never fed her before, yet he wasn’t awkward with her, or she with him, and later what he remembered of dinner was the conversation, not the logisitics.
