Strike One

When your best laid plans gang aft agley, turn to a machine that will help you sweep up the pieces.

"Can you believe," Sylvia told Nestoras, "I've never once been in your apartment?" Nestoras nodded a little self-consciously. She'd seen him in just an undershirt a million times in the hall, but now that she was standing here in his apartment, he felt so much more awkward.

"Anyway, I didn't mean to interrupt your cleaning. I just wanted to ask about my sink. Do you know when the replacement handle is gonna get here?"

"They said two weeks almost two weeks ago." Nestoras unwound the cord of his Electrolux Nimble Vacuum and wished he'd vacuumed last night. "So it should be in any day now."

"I'm glad," said Sylvia. Nestoras could see the biggest carrot crumb just behind her heel, and he quietly prepared the 3-in-1 tool, just in case she stepped on it. In fact, since the Electrolux Nimble Vacuum's 12 amp cyclonic technology made for a deep and powerful clean, her stepping on it might be for the best. At least then it wouldn't be as obvious and maybe she wouldn't think he was a slob. How could someone like Sylvia ever love a slob?

Nestoras realized he hadn't said a word in a while. Was it awkward? He focused on the Quick-Release wand and pretended it wasn't as quick as it seemed. Sylvia was just looking around. "I gotta say, Nestoras, you do keep a pretty clean apartment. When Rod and I were together, he could barely keep his boxer shorts off our lamp. But here you are with a HEPA filtering vacuum and... is that a real painting?"

"Yeah, it belonged to my Yia-Yia. She left it to me after she passed on."

"Oh, I'm sorry." Sylvia put her hand over her heart in a reflex. Nestoras waved her off.

"It was a decade ago, she had a full life. She was making me baklava right up until the end. Speaking of which, I just made some last night. Here, I've got extra, I'll give you a batch!"

Nestoras grabbed the tin (he'd bought it special just for this occasion) and a spatula. Sylvia took his arm quickly.

"Oh, I'd love to, but I can't! I'm on this sugar-free diet right now, apparently it's much more healthy, and I'm not getting any younger, right?"

"Right," said Nestoras, setting down the tin. "How long have you been-"

"Oh, I just started a few weeks ago, when I was on vacation. Figured I'd keep it up. I must say, though, that smells amazing. Your Yia Yia was quite a baker."

"She was. She used to say 'One bite of this, Nestoras, and any woman will love you forever!'"

Sylvia laughed. "Good thing I'm not eating any then! I'm the last thing you need in your life!"

Nestoras laughed too, because he couldn't think of anything else to say. Sylvia waved as she turned to go.

"I'll be home all week, just let me know when that faucet arrives. It'll be so nice to have two that match at last. I think that one all by itself is getting lonely!"

"It probably is," Nestoras answered as he wrapped his baklava in plastic. Sylvia saw herself out.
