Lunch Date

When Hu-Dad eats his mid-day bowl of popcorn and catches up on reading, he always has a few volunteers who want to be his lunch date.

Nice of you to invite me to lunch - lunch date
Nice of you to invite me to lunch

We hang out with Hu-Dad in his study as he writes in the mornings and does other busyness in the afternoons, but the mid-day break is the most exciting time. Most days, Hu-Dad makes himself a bowl of popcorn and, on pretty days, sits outside to eat and catch up on emails and social media. The only part of that sentence we paid attention to was “popcorn.” And, yes, we all volunteer to be his lunch date. Typhoon is applying some serious thought control to will the tasty morsels to fly toward him.
