Rainbow Snippets – A Kinsey Scale Thanksgiving
Hello, All! Welcome to Rainbow Snippets. I’ve been busy with the release of The Kinsey Scale since my last Snippet. That one was about Halloween so I thought I’d continue the holiday theme with a scene from Thanksgiving. This is actually the morning after. Eric has brought Will to his family home to sleep off the excess alcohol Will imbibed when they met up in a bar the night before. This is a cute scene with Eric and his mom. She knows Eric’s foibles only too well.
As he neared the kitchen, he sniffed the air appreciatively. Not only did he smell coffee already brewing, he thought he detected the delicious aroma of fresh pancakes. Mom stood at the stove.
“Something smells good,” he said as he came up to hug her from behind.
She kissed him on the cheek. “I thought I’d do some pancakes, since you have your roommate here.”
“Will? Yeah, he and Doug are busy bonding over video games.”
“Yes, we met earlier. He was very polite too. And cute.”
“Mom,” Eric protested and poured himself a cup of coffee. “He’s straight and having problems with his girlfriend. But yeah, he’s cute. Oh, and if he brings it up, Jerry and I are dating. Okay?”
“What?” She frowned. “Dear, you know you always end up shooting yourself in the foot when you try to be tricky.”
“Yes, Mother. Anything you say—hey!” Eric wasn’t able to move in time to avoid the dishtowel that flew into his chest. At least Mom favored soft objects when she was in a throwing mood.
That’s it for today’s snippet. Have a great Thanksgiving if you celebrate it and even if you don’t, do something to celebrate YOU.
