A grieving mother at her beloved son’s graveside: “Car crash. He’d been drinking.” Had he tried AA? Indignantly, “No. He wasn’t THAT bad!”
Isn’t that Haiku?
amazing how a mother’s love will oversee all their children’s serious flaws until it’s too late.
Just like her sensitive, effeminate, openly gay son, who course “isn’t one of those queers”.
Tisa, I think I know that lady and her relatives from high school in Kansas mid 80’s. Sad how common this can be.
Not sure if I want to laugh or cry. You summed up a sad reality of how far denial can stretch.
as a parent i find myself guilty of this. just pray we learn from our caring ignorance.
