I had spent several hours today working on my patio in this awful heat. Just had time for a quick shower before I picked her up for her appointment with the eye doctor.
The waiting room was packed. I finished my water and refilled the bottle from the drinking fountain. Finished that, refilled again. Sat down and my dear mother quipped in a very audible, very mother-like voice,
“I see you’re hitting the bottle again.”
The whole room erupted. Even the nurses looked in to see what was so funny!
She’s had a good week!
