“I’m wondering when the wooing will stop and what you’ll be like when it does.”
“Who says I’m going to stop?”
“Jon used to play board games with Jill, and now he doesn’t.” Mitch raised his eyebrows. “Now the only game he plays with her is Scrabble.” Mitch tipped his head to the side and squinted at her. She opened her eyes very wide, as if it would help him see her point. “When he was wooing her, he played games with her. Now he doesn’t.”
Mitch busted a gut, laughing. Her jaw dropped and mouth formed an O. “He supports her and the kids in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed, as I’m sure you’ve heard Jill say. His time and energy are limited. Why squander them on board games,” he stated rather than asked.
Mindi stared at him and considered the validity of his comment, then took a sip of tea. “Okay. Then nature. Eventually your focus will return to your typical activities.”
He shrugged. “Work, women, and worthwhile sports.” He winked. “I’m keeping in shape, staying on top of work, and want on top of you,” he quipped, then took a drink of beer without taking his eyes off of her.
