The Great Adventure

The couple backed the car out
of the driveway, the husband at
the wheel. They were starting
out for the airport where the
woman would meet her mother
and sister for the first leg of a
trip to Greece for a vacation.
The car pulled away. The across
the street neighbor whistled after
the car. It stopped, backed up.
The woman rolled down the win-
dow. He called out, “Say hi to my
good friend Zorba for me. We were
dancing partners back in the day. ”
“Will do.” “Have a great vacation.”
“Thanks.” The neighbor could hear
the anticipatory excitement in her
voice. She waved as her husband
drove down the street on the way
to the great adventure.
