Yesterday afternoon, I saw the sweetest thing ever as I sat in line to turn left. I was across the street from Coffee Park and I saw two brothers skateboarding--one older (12?), one younger(7?)-- only that wasn't the best part. They were on the same skateboard together, the little brother facing the big brother with his arms wrapped the big brother's waist, as the big brother guided them zooming along. It was so sweet I could hardly stand it. With school out yesterday, the park was loaded with kids and seeing these two just made bust out in a big old grin. I can still see them both in my head and it just gasses me.
I ran by this afternoon to see mom and for the first time, I don't think she knew who I was. It didn't kill me like I thought it might--I just got pictures and showed her who I was, and then tried to be as comforting and fun as I could. Then later, she said my name so I guess my monologue got her back on track.
I told mom I hadn't seen Hudson since the party over here several weeks ago and it seemed like he'd grown another three inches. He had some kind of gel AND shave cream in his hair and I could have just eaten him. He smelled wonderful. All three of them just wow me no end and they always provide great fodder to entertain mom with. She loves hearing about them and I can sure understand why.
