Terry stared across the table at Lisa. “A party dress? You want me to wear a party dress tonight? Why?”<br /><br />Lisa laughed. “Because it's Saturday and that’s date night at the Rendezvous. We all get dolled up tonight. It's a tradition. And you'll want to look your best since the music agent and producer are coming back tonight to give us a listen!”<br /><br />Amy walked over to a shiny red dress lying on the couch. She handed it to her son. “Here you go, sweetie.” She sighed. “My last night of having two daughters.”<br /><br />Terry shook his head and laughed. “Mom, enjoy it while you can. Technically, I was your ‘niece' all weekend. Tomorrow, Terry’s coming back and I’m excited to sleep in my own bed. As much at Tasha loves playing in the band, Terry's looking forward to coming home.”<br /><br />Lisa smiled, “Well, you're sure going out with a bang. The petticoats make that skirt so bouncy and oh, so cute. It shows off your long legs, especially when you're in pantyhose and high heels.”<br /><br />Terry pretended to be sad, holding his head in his hands. “The two of you are crazy!”<br /><br />Lisa grinned and looked at her mother. “Terry, you've been a great sport. Mom and I just want to dress you up one more time. We're having so much fun!”<br /><br />“Way too much fun. Someday, I'll find a way to show my appreciation.” Terry let out a deep breath and stood up. He took the dress and held it out from his body like it was diseased.<br /><br />“Okay, gang. Let’s get this over with. I'm going to continue to be a sport. It's been awesome playing in the band. I just don't like the disguises.”<br />
