This snippet is from my work in progress, ALL THAT GLITTERS. Annie, the main character, is a perfectionist, who always strives to make her holiday celebrations something even Martha Stewart would envy. Over the course of the story, Annie's various relatives move into her house, disrupting her perfect little world.
This scene takes place on Easter morning between Annie and her uncle:
"Who are the masters?"
Milt shook his head as if he couldn't believe her question, but he stayed focused on his task of pushing the couch until it sat directly in front of the television. "The Masters, you know, golf."
"Are you saying you invited the bar crowd to watch golf here today, Easter Sunday?"
Milt shrugged as he nudged one of the chairs closer to the couch. "Is that a problem?"
Hmmm... I think Annie's stress level just spiked.
