Michael hung up the receiver and smiled at Sandy. “Good morning.”
“Good morning.” She looked past him, searching for Kathy. “Are you alone?”
“Lera and Dorothy are in the back. I sent Kathy for donuts.”
“Do you still have that sweet tooth?”
“Guilty as charged. There’s a bakery down the street that makes the best glazed old-fashioned donuts I’ve ever tasted. On Fridays, I splurge and buy a dozen.”
“How do you keep in shape if you make a habit out of eating like that?”
“I run five miles a day and work out three days a week. Besides, we can’t eat the whole dozen by ourselves. The first few patients get to help us.” He grinned. “That means you.”
“Oh, boy, my lucky day,” she said without a hint of enthusiasm.
His grin faded. “You don’t like glazed old-fashioned?”
“There isn’t a donut in the world I don’t like. Unfortunately, they go right to my thighs.”
“You have nothing to worry about in that department. Remember, I saw you yesterday in those tight slacks.”
“They weren’t that tight, and you haven’t seen me without any clothes.”
His grin returned, this time devilish. “Is that an invitation?”
