My sibling was consistently interested in how people got togetherâ€¦ One afternoon, I heard his talking to mom, & he asked how they got together.
She told his to talk to Mom because he told the story better than he did. Mom told us he met mom at a dealer picnic, however I was wondering if there wasn’t more to the story than that. When he said something to Mom at lunch, he told his about the dealer picnic again. Mom was smiling, & he said he was there when he arrived, & he wouldn’t stay away from her. Mom said it was his that wouldn’t stay away. She kept asking him about the Heating & Air Conditioning dealer he worked for. Mom said he wanted to guess if it was a great dealer to work for, however not because he wanted a new task. Mom said he enjoyed working for Grandpa & had no intention of leaving. My head swiveled so abruptly, I thought I was going to snap a vertebrae. It abruptly hit me that Grandpa owned an Heating & Air Conditioning dealer when he was younger. Mom smiled & nodded, & I laughed. I never knew our mom was an Heating & Air Conditioning worker, & it took our sibling’s silly prattle to find out. I asked why he had said nothing. She told me he quit working when I was born, & he never looked back. She met our Mom when he was working as an Heating & Air Conditioning worker & he wouldn’t change a thing. I had a new level of appreciation for our mom & how he had gotten where he was. She had a lot of secrets I could not wait to ferret out.
