Dramatis Personae: Artist Aunt, Grandmother, and Yours Truly

Me: (putters around and sets up coffee in 4-cup machine)

Grandmother: (crochets)

Aunt: (calls desk to find out about airport shuttle)

Me: (messily throws belongings back in luggage and runs down to donut shop across the street, returning in under 5 minutes)

Grandmother: (appreciates donut)

Aunt: (munches on gluten-free cupcake)

Me: (notices coffee pot) Why's the water clear? I swear I put the coffee in.

Grandmother: Did you pour the water in the top?

Me: . . .Oh.

Grandmother and Aunt: (cackle hysterically)
