Finally getting my mother

When I was in my 20’s my mother was very outgoing.  She used to flirt with young men.  They seemed to play along or humour her.  When I brought my boyfriend home she flirted with him.  I married him and spent 25 years with him.

Now I am 53.  I was at a friend’s house where there is a volleyball court.  All his kids and friends were playing.  I had a broken toe so I was watching.  It was hot and summer, the young men started taking off their shirts.  I announced that all the men playing must take their shirts off.

They did.  I sat there being entertained while sipping my drink. 

In that moment I realised that I had become my mother.  This is exactly what she would have done. I laughed out loud and toasted her.

Too bad I finally “got” my mother in my 50’s but she has already been gone 8 years.

A nice summer moment.  She would have been proud.
