They got acquainted for a bit discussing religion, life, travel, and the whole meaning of Christmas thing. Louise thought it must be Toulouse's first Christmas, he didn't seem to know much at all about the holiday, mainly that he needed to secure a gift for Louise ASAP! All that invigorating conversation worked up their appetite and they decided to head out to the buffet table. "Ya gotta see the spread out there Toulouse baby... we are living high on the hog!"
They ate for a bit, and then played in the food. Toulouse absolutely LOVES the feel of pate between his toes!
After all that munching they decided to get a tasty beverage. They chilled out in the ice bin. "But where is the Merlot?" Toulouse asked pecking around in the cubes. "Silly Toulouse, " said Louise, "Everyone knows Meer-Lot is served hot!"
Since neither of them could master the wine opener they asked Big Brass to help out. Louise picked a bottle of vintage red and Big Brass opened it... not to sure if she should or not.
Louise was pleasantly surprised at just how much she likes this new fellow. For a moment she thought he might be a bit pretentious, being a New Yorker and all, but that was clearly not the case!
