Carmen was standing at the punch bowl greeting people and Alex was behind her talking to someone when Candice stopped at the table.
Alex glanced at Donald as he offered a hand to Candice.
Donald's perplexed gaze went from Candice to Alex and then finally sought Carmen.
Alex continued to hold out his hand until Candice accepted it.
A few years ago Carmen wouldn't have had a clue what Candice was talking about.
