The Belly Has Demands

“Alright, let’s get to stepping.  I haven’t seen that fella with the braids in a minute.”

I ask, “Who do you mean?”

The belly grumbles, “Down at the Barbecue spot on 54, right next to the place that sells adult refreshments.”

“Oh, I’m on a diet.  I can’t eat anything from a restaurant.  That costs gas money.”

Belly rumbles and groans, “Get in your car sister.  Don’t ask anymore questions.  Me and CeCe, we’ve got to eat by 2:30.  That’s early enough to settle in before Wolf Blitzer or that other one.

“Sorry,” I say looking through my wallet, “I don’t have that thing the boy with the cute braids will need.”

Belly laughs and leans back, “I always forget about them Human customs.”
