Scott gets a plate and a fork out of the cabinets and walks over to the chocolate cake sitting on the counter to have a slice when Tabitha walks up behind him and snatches the fork from him.
“Did I hear cake?” Billy asks, strolling out of his room with his nose in the air. “Smells good.”
“Have you been home this entire time? We just assumed you were working when you didn't show up when the apartment started smelling like chocolate cake.”
“Nope, working tonight. I just assumed I was having a chocolate cake craving, I didn't really think you were baking on a Monday!”
“Is Monday a non-baking day?”
“Isn't that why most bakeries are closed on Mondays? It must be a bad day for baking.”
“This cake smells good at least, so maybe Tabitha's the exception to the rule.”
“Why is it Sara's cake, and why can't I have any?”
“We're celebrating that she found a new job. She's off getting her physical and drug screen right now.”
She'll be back in time for dinner though right? We were going to watch the Mets game tonight since the Yankees are off.”
“Probably, it's just a physical. She had to go to Jersey City for it though.”
Sara walks in just then.
“She's early! Surprise Sara! Cake!”
“I thought something smelled good.”
“So you got a new job? Where? Doing what? Are you going to start paying for coffee again?”
“It's in Jersey City, so I'll have to play on the Path train everyday. It's ..well I don't really know what my job would be. Sorta tech support for some of their applications. Not a perfect job, but good enough for now. Well it'll be at least three weeks before I get my first paycheck, so don't expect me to pay for coffee before that!”
“Sara's here now. Can we eat the cake?”
“Shouldn't we have dinner first?”
“You made me dinner too?”
“No..I forgot all about making dinner. Pizza delivery anyone?”
Scott and Billy start chanting “Cake! Cake! Cake!” and pretty soon Frank and Sara join in too.
“I guess we're having the cake for dinner. We could order pizza for dessert?”
“Good idea. And some garlic knots. Gotta love the knots.”
“So when do you start Sara?”
“Wanna pre-spend your first paycheck and go to Cooperstown?”
“Cooperstown huh? I've never been..sure!”
“Anyone else want to come?”
“I'll come. Can we go to Howe's Caverns too?”
“Sure, that's one of the quintessential upstate New York tourist destinations I hear...have you been?”
“Years ago with my family.”
“This sounds like fun! When do you want to go?”
“You've got the physical and everything you need for work out of the way right? How about tomorrow?”
“Tomorrow? Not like I have anything to do..Can you get off work Ann? Anyone else?”
“I can, yes.”
Scott and Tabitha shake their heads.
“Just us then. Good, we can all fit in my car.”
