"Not for hours I'm afraid...there's a special project or some such thing and she said she would be late!"
"That's certainly disappointing...I had something I really wanted to give her today and I'll be leaving town shortly..."
"Well....give it to me and I'll be sure to give it to her with your complements when she gets home tonight"
"Alright Sissy, let's step inside and I'll give you what I was going to give her!!!!"
