...the park nearly impossible. "Such awful news," Eddie s mother says. "Not at a birthday." She turns the dial until the small box offers music, an orchestra playing a swing melody, and she smiles and hums along. Then she comes over to Eddie, who is slouched in his chair, picking at the last pieces of cake. She removes her apron, folds it over a chair, and lifts Eddie by the hands. "Show me how you danced with your new friend," she says. "Aw, Ma." "Come on." Eddie stands as if being led to his execution. His brother smirks. But his mother, with her pretty, round face, keeps humming and stepping back and forth, until Eddie falls into a dance step with her. "Daaa daa deeee," she sings with the melody, ". . . when you're with meeee . . . da da . . . the stars, and the moon . . . the da . . . da . . . da . . . in June . . ." They move around the living room until Eddie breaks down and laughs. He is already taller than his mother by a good six inches, yet she twirls him with ease. "So," she whispers, "you like this girl?" Eddie loses a step. "It's all right," she says. "I'm happy for you." They spin to the table, and Eddie s mother grabs Joe and pulls him up. "Now you two dance," she says. "With him?" "Ma!" But she insists and they relent, and soon Joe and Eddie are laughing and stumbling into each other. They join hands and move, swooping up and down in exaggerated circles. Around and around the table they go, to their mother's delight, as the......
