[Now that Maryann is well on her way to straightening out her life, it’s time for you to meet Nadia’s Aunt Magda. Because Magda’s personality is somewhat frenetic, the pace of the story may pick up from time to time to keep up with her because she’s a fast thinker, a fast talker, and a fast mover. Magda admits to being 65, but she’s closer to 70. Last year, she moved to Broadwater Park, an active adult community. Up until then, she drove a car, but nowadays, she prefers to putt putt around the park in her golf cart. Whenever she needs a ride, she usually calls Zizi.
As this new chapter opens, Nadia is plumping up pillows in the front room where she conducts her readings.]
Zizi, slightly out of breath after rushing from her car and up the steps to Nadia’s porch, burst through the door. She sees Nadia at the sofa and blurts, “Is Aunt Magda here?”
Continuing to arrange the pillows, Nadia replied, “No, why would she be here? Today’s Friday. They’re having the shuffleboard tournament at the Broadwater and her friend, Beanie, is in the finals. Don’t you remember?”
