The mail lady just knocked on the door with a package for MG. I answered the door shirtless, in a black apron that hung lower than my shorts underneath, covered in flour and holding a giant rolling pin in one hand…
“Oh, are you cooking?” she asked innocently.
“Well… in a way” I answered, and smiled big.
