Carol Anne plucked a lipstick cylinder from her purse and angled the rear-view mirror so she could fix her make-up. “What do you mean `fast’? We’ve been parked out here for over an hour!”
“Are you suggesting that it’s time I took you home?”
Carol Anne dropped the lipstick back into her purse with a smile. “Of course not! I’m just saying that, y’know, time flies where you’re, y’know, having fun.”
