Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.
I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.
Your three words are:

Thomas had told Ginny that today was going to be her welcome home dinner that they had to postpone in the beginning. He had been looking forward to it all day. Although he had to beg Ginny to allow him to bring her the dinner because she had finally started back to school and was worn out.
He pulled into the restaurant that his mom worked at, La Petite Maison de Cuisine, and started inside to pick up his order. His phone rang and it was his mom. “Thomas, I am so sorry, I put your order in my pocket and then forgot to give it to the chef. It is going to be late. I am so sorry.”
“Ma! Are you kidding me? It is already 9:00 PM and how long do you expect it to take to put the order together? I told Ginny I would be there no later than 9:15 PM. She still gets tired easily and she was already grumbling about being tired when I left to come pick up the meal. You were supposed to have it packed and ready to go.”
“Listen Thomas, I am sorry, but I am exhausted myself. I work 30 hours per week and have 12 kids to take care of all day. I forgot. I am sorry. I am sure Ginny will understand. She is a sweet girl. Just tell her that your mom forgot and that I apologize. She will be fine. The chef is just finishing up cooking it and then I will pack it up for you. You won’t be that late, relax.”
“Sorry Ma, I know you work hard for all of us. I am on my way in now.”
