Hump Day Hook

This is the only mention of Thanksgiving (so far!) in any of my books.  Enjoy:)

Her meltdown occurred at her grandmother's house. Kenny made a typical joke about women with PMS, and Keri snapped.
"Just wait until you get involved with someone with a crazy schedule, who hardly has any time for you." She burst into tears and fled into the bathroom, humiliated for losing her temper, and angry at Kyle for not being able to see her the previous day. After several minutes of crying, Keri padded down the hall to the guest bedroom and stretched out on the flowered comforter.
Soon, she heard her mother's footsteps approach. Then Keri felt gentle hands stroke her hair.
"I'm sorry I ruined dinner," Keri muttered after several minutes.
"This is pretty serious, isn't it honey? You've fallen pretty hard for this Kyle."
Keri nodded. "I've never felt this way before."
"Mmmhhhmmm, so he's not a student…It must be rough when schedules aren't in synch. I remember how hard it was for your dad and me when I was in med school."

A mother's tenderness is a wonderful thing. I like books that include the family.

Poor thing.... and Kenny's probably thinking that her reaction confirmed his PMS comment!
