A Little Presentation

“I brought some brownies.”

“They look delicious. Thanks. Do you have a tray?”

“A what?”

“A tray. Something nice to set them out on?”

In the other room, ten people stood talking quietly. Some held crystal cut tumblers, others long-stemmed wine glasses, and a few shoved their hands deep in their pockets. In the kitchen, the two of them argued with clenched smiles.

“Honestly, I wouldn’t have minded if you’d tried a little harder.”

“Then put them on a fucking plate. Jesus.”

“It’s not just the brownies. I mean, it is, mostly. But there’s that other thing, you know, too.”
