Talking Dictionary570. Dinner And A Movie


570. Don and his fiancée Tess were visiting his son Harvey in Brooklyn. Don and Harvey hadn't seen each other in years. Harvey had invited them to an Italian restaurant. Harvey waited for them outside the restaurant. When Don and Tess arrived, father and son hugged for a long moment. "It's so good to see you," Don said. They went inside. Don said, "Oh, I love the smell of this place. If the food tastes half as good as it smells, I'll be in heaven." Harvey said, "Well, I've never eaten here, but some friends recommended it." The meal was every bit as good as it smelled. They left the restaurant. They stood outside and talked about which movie to go see. Suddenly, Don grimaced. He started to collapse. Harvey caught him. Tess helped Harvey lower Don to the sidewalk. He died in a hospital later that night. He was 55. 3.5
