My late husband, Baxter Diamond, had left me handsomely provided for, but something in me rebelled at spending that much money on my hair. Sophie had told me more than once that this was a distinctly unfeminine attitude. Easily interpreting my lack of response to her offer, Sophie laughed. ‘‘I guess I should know better by now. But one of these days I’m going to kidnap you and take you myself. ’’ Sophie arched an eyebrow. ‘‘Ha-ha,’’ I made a face at her. ‘‘You might like to wear the gross national product of Uruguay on your back, but I prefer to pamper myself in other ways.
I can go back, and I have to. ’’ I caught Sophie rolling her eyes, and I could hear the words as clearly as if she had spoken them aloud. That train’s already left the station, honey. I tried not to react and choke on the delicious soup I had just spooned into my mouth. Swallowing hastily, I reached for my napkin to wipe my lips. Marylou came back to the table and sat down. Picking up her spoon, she regarded Paula. ‘‘Now, what on earth do you mean by that, Paula? ’’ Paula’s self-satisfied smile lit up her face.
Yeah,’’ Sophie replied. She finished her last bite of coffee cake. ‘‘Then I guess we’ll just have to wait until lunch to find out,’’ I said. ’’ Sophie nodded before sipping from her coffee. ‘‘Then I have plenty of time to do some house-cleaning before I have to clean myself up,’’ I said. ‘‘My hair is really beginning to get out of control. ’’ Sophie eyed me critically. ‘‘Yes, Emma, you could use a good cut. ’’ Considering that Sophie usually spent about 150 dollars when she had her hair done, I wasn’t certain I really wanted an introduction to her stylist.
