Susan's family was enjoying cranberry cheesecake after dinner when Susan's father asked, Did I ever tell you my favorite cranberry story?
Susan didn't have a favorite cranberry story of her own so she was intrigued.
Many years ago, back before Susan's mom stopped letting Susan's dad do anything fun, he used to fly. There was a private airfield in Cape Cod that ended in a cranberry bog. If he landed when the field was flooded he'd have to wear his rubbers.
That's not really a story, Pop.
Yes, it is.
No, it's more like a description.
