And it was cold outside so he knew it would probably take longer than usual. “Also what in the world are cheese cream ragoods?” he added as he walked over to grab his coat.“Cream cheese rangoons,” Kicks corrected with a giggle. “They’re like, little fried dumplings with cream cheese filling. They’re really good you’ll probably like them.” Looking out the window at the weather, which was still gloomy and cold but at least not precipitating. “And um, we can probably leave in about five minutes or so. It’s not that far at all.” Plus whenever they say it’ll take fifteen minutes, they always mean it’ll take at least twenty.
