It's Friday evening and Avery and Craig Hamilton have just stopped by the Matthews' home to pay them a short visit. Grayson opened the door and let them in.
Grayson: So what brings you two by this evening?
Craig: I know I'm coming to watch the game with you Sunday, but since we were out, I was hoping to get a look at the new TV that will allow us to enjoy the activities.
Avery: I hope it's okay. We should have called first. We won't stay long.
Grayson (laughing): It's okay. Well, let me give you the grand tour. Have a seat.
Avery and Craig sit down as Grayson starts explaining what he bought and why - the larger television with HI-DEF picture and clarity, the surround sound with two speakers that make you feel like you're there and the unexpected plus, the Play Station.
Craig: You went all out to improve the total entertainment experience.
Grayson: I sure did.
Avery: It's really nice.
Craig: I'm looking forward to watching every play. Don't forget, I'll grab beer and wings on my way. Everything will be fresh, hot and cold.
Grayson: Yep, I'll have the other food all ready.
Craig: So are there any other features?
Avery and Craig say hello.
Avery: We were having some alone time, some dinner to just be us. We were on our way home and Craig said he wanted to drop by for a few just to check out the new television.
Craig: Don't forget the surround sound.
Cyann: Of course. Well, I'm glad to see you. So where's Aviana?
Craig: Having Parker around is coming in handy. He's home with her. I took my beautiful wife to dinner.
Cyann: Aww! That's great. Take advantage all you can, before he leaves. Speaking of which, did he find a permanent job yet?
Avery (to Craig): Don't forget he may have a steady opportunity soon.
Cyann: Oh, that's good. I hope it works out.
Avery: Well, Henna called me the other day and asked for his number. She lost a contractor and needs a new one who is reliable. Parker told me he is going to meet with her and discuss what she's looking for and see if it's something he wants to do.
Cyann: She is. She worked hard to build it.
Grayson: So, speaking of you ladies and business, my Play Station also has this neat microphone. You're welcome to use it for karaoke.
Cyann: Gray, I don't see how that ties in to the conversation at this point, but thanks for sharing.
Grayson: It's connected. You'll get it.
Cyann: Sure. Of course.
Grayson sits beside Cyann.
Craig: It's getting a little cramped and he's cramping my style. After Avi would go to bed, we'd have the run of the house to be two consenting adults.
Avery: Craig! Really?
Grayson: It's okay, Craig. Hey, speaking of consenting adults, whatever happened with Marlin? Did she manage to get her hooks into him?
Avery: No. I am supposed to invite her over for dinner. We've all been so busy, I haven't been able too. And I feel bad. She has called. I can tell she is trying not to be a pest, but I can also tell she is anxious.
Craig: Well, we can find a way for you to keep your word soon. Maybe instead of having her at the house, we can go to dinner. That way you don't have to plan a meal.
Avery: But I cook anyway, so it's only one more person for dinner.
Craig: Yes, but the apartment is not as tidy as you like it.
Avery: True. (looks at Cyann and Grayson) You know, we were only supposed to stay for a few minutes. It's time for us to head home.
Avery stands up and Craig stands up with her.
Avery: I love you, Honey, but save that for when we're alone.
Craig: Okay. Sorry, Babe.
Craig: Thanks for letting us take a look. I think I have some upgrading to do.
Avery: Yet another conversation for the car. Let's go, Honey.
Grayson: You two are funny. I'll walk you to the door.
Cyann: It was nice you stopped by. Have a good night. And, Craig... enjoy your dessert.
Craig (smiling): I will!
Grayson walks the Avery and Craig to the door while Cyann heads to the bedroom to relax.
Here is a closer look at the television (I made), the surround sound control box, the Play Station and its accessories and a game. It's so cute. Do you see the motion camera in front of the TV for the Play Station?
As always, I appreciate your stopping by. ~ Jaye
