The Thing

"Diane's having a World Cup party on Sunday," Gloria said. Diane is the mother of one of Eli's best friends.

"High-definition plasma," I said, pointing to the screen.

"Yup," Eli 8.11 said.

"I'm staying here," I said, "but it's okay if you guys want to go."

"Nope," Eli said.

"Be sure Diane understands that I like her, and that she isn't the reason I'm not going," I said. "It's the party mixing with the World Cup thing."

"Right," Gloria said.

"Actually, that's not right," I said. "It's the party thing."

"I could have said that for you," she said.
