"How do you like your steak?" he asked, as the flames shot up from the charcoal pit beneath the grill.

"I'll pass, thanks," said Charlie.

"I like mine rare," said Adam.

"Oh, you and rare meat!" exclaimed Charlie, going to Mae's side. "His whole family eats meat so rare it could walk away on its own power! It's as if the entire family has never even heard of mad cow disease!"

"You really should cook it more than that," advised Uncle Rick, "otherwise, it's just not safe. I like mine cooked just enough so it's no longer pink."

"Then I'll take mine the same way," conceded the musician.

"Are you a vegetarian, Charlie?" asked Mae, more surprised than Charlie thought was warranted.

"Yes," she replied.

"So am I!" exclaimed Mae. "It's not that I have anything personal against meat, but the way they treat animals these days is simply inhumane!"

Recalling their previous conversation, Charlie whispered something into Mae's ear.

"No," answered Mae, "I was waiting for you. I haven't the nerve to do it alone."

"Do what alone?" asked Uncle Rick, placing a steak on the grill.

"Mae and I will be back in a little bit," said Charlie, taking her hostess by the hand and disappearing into the main house.

"Women," chuckled Uncle Rick to Adam, "I can't understand them!"

Adam smiled knowingly and remained quiet.

Charlie rushed Mae to the bathroom and tore open the box, taking out the instructions, while her friend eyed the kit nervously.

"Maybe this isn't a good idea," hesitated Mae. "Maybe I should wait to find out."

"Is that what you really want?" asked Charlie, looking up from the instructions.

"No," whimpered Mae.

"It says to place the test wand under a urine stream and then to set it aside and wait for three minutes," read Charlie.

"That's gross!" exclaimed the woman.

"Mae," asked Charlie, "how old are you?"

"Twenty-two," replied Mae. "Why do you ask?"

"No reason," smiled Charlie. "Here, go do your thing," she said, handing her the test wand.

Charlie waited, and before long, Mae appeared with the pregnancy test.

"How long do we have to wait before we know?" asked Mae, placing it on the sink ledge and pacing back and forth.

"Three minutes," repeated Charlie.

Mae continued to nervously pace until it was time to check the test results.

"You do it," she said, pushing Charlie in front of her. "I can't look."
