On the table was the gift sitting pretty among the wine and dishes ready for dinner.
I pretended I was busy on my laptop happily doing nothing but waiting for this moment.
Pointing to the gift: "That".
"Oh, that! Nothing really. Just a little gift!"
"Who gave you that?"
"Oh, I got it today."
"From Frank? Did Frank give you that?"
Not being able to stand it anymore she approaches the gift and moves the paper around a little without showing any signs that she is really interested. I offer:
"You want to open it? Go ahead if you want to."
