Mom’s Tantrum

But I knew him first, she declared!  Mom was ticked that I wouldn’t bring Tony to play cards at her house.  She wanted to make sure there was no question in my mind – she met him before I did and she wasn’t a stranger to him.  Geez Louise.  I haven’t been on a date in forever and now my sick mother is having a tantrum because she wants to hang out with the nurse that helped her recover.  That wasn’t like her.  I wanted to fold and let her win, but I couldn’t.  I wanted to be fair to Tony.  It would be too tempting to keep dating him if Mom fell in love with him, even if I didn’t like him.

At least I filled her in on what I learned from the date.  He’s a nice guy, has a son from a prior marriage, lives with his parents about 25 miles away, drives a fairly new and clean truck, has a good sense of humor.  That would have to be enough for now.  He was nervously chattering away and although I listened intently, I didn’t retain it all.

I wondered why he told me about his son on the first date.  But then again, why did I tell him that I just got out of an ugly breakup and am emotionally high maintenance.






About inspiredbybrooke

I lost my mom and my grandma to cancer, along with three other people I loved dearly. I decided to start this blog to capture my thoughts about where I've been, where I'm going and what I've learned from life. It's opened my eyes to all the other blogs out there and people I can relate to. Now I know I'm not so alone after all.
