Things that make me smile #236: I look down at my plate and notice that the pickle, which had two pointy ends when the waitress set it in front of me, now has one pointy end and one crescent-shaped one. I look pointedly at Christie, then down at my plate. With all the credibility she can scrape together, she says, "It was an accident. I was walking, and I tripped, and my mouth landed on your pickle," and the corners of her mouth are twitchy, but she holds her eyes wide, daring me to laugh.
