Illicit grape snacking

Ripening grapes

Our seedless grapes are just starting to ripen, but Mark hasn't enjoyed one yet. They're right outside the front window, and when I need to stretch my legs between writing bursts, I can't help getting up and snagging one for a snack. Do you think he'll believe it's the fault of birds if I tell him in a few weeks that they're all gone?

I expect that Mark will discover you sneakiness before they are all gone! You would not do that to him, I am sure!!
