I noticed Bell had gotten out a small sheet of paper and systematically began placing mini dough balls gingerly in rows on the crisp white sheet. She would stand back every now and then and seemed so be inspecting her work from every angle.
When she finished she began yelling across the table.
“Get it while it’s hot! Get it while it’s hot!”
Of course a small group gathered and I moved in.
“So Bell, what have you got that’s so hot?”
“They’re hot and fresh.” She said.
Preschoolers were reaching for them, little hands were waving in all directions across the table. I couldn't really hear what they were saying with all the high pitched chatter but Bell's items were clearly a hot ticket.
“I think I might need one or two, Bell.” I said holding out my hand.
“You sure you need two?” She laughed.
“I’m sure.” I said.
“Okay, two bellybuttons coming up!”
