Alex continued muttering to himself as he observed the remaining Honey Nut Cheerios float in the remnants of milk in his bowl. He was in the process of scooping them up when his cellphone rang.
“Hola?” he answered, his mouthful of cereal.
“Hey, it’s Josie,” replied the assistant stage manager.
“Oh, hey,” he replied after swallowing. “What’s up?”
“I know it’s your day off and you’re planning on working on the script, but you have to eat, so I was thinking…”
Alex raised an eyebrow, waiting to see where this was going.
“Meet me for dinner?”
He frowned, not sure how to respond.
