: I know I'll think of some funny things later, but right now the only one that comes to my mind is a real humbling senior moment I had. We were gathered in a parking lot at the Dupont plant, awaiting those who were in need of the "facilities" there. I was talking to several other Gatherers as we leaned on one of the vehicles, and having a good time visiting, when I decided it was time for me to go get back in Eric's truck. So I trudged all the way down to the bottom of the stupid hilly parking lot to a truck parked there, only to find out it was not one of ours. I'm standing there like a big dummy, looking around (with a coddled eggs a la Alice expression on my face, no doubt) for the RIGHT truck...and whaddya think? It was the truck I had been leaning on before I hiked down the blasted hill! Being a quick-thinker, I pretended I knew it all along & walked down there on purpose, just for the exercise! I sauntered nonchalently back to where I started from, being blase and whistling unconcernedly, as though I hadn't a care in the world. I'm pretty sure they bought my act, and it was something else entirely they were hooting & laughing at! I cannot imagine they would make fun of their Mohican Mama, can you?
I'm sitting at work, catching just a few quick posts ( yeah right, ALL of them) and come across your funny rememberings. I am rolling in the floor laughing, thinking of how you parted from Cecelia and Me and others and headed UP the stupid hilly parking lot (not down) to a racy little number of a truck (at least half the size of Eric's and without fifteen other people STILL sitting in the bed of the truck) **still trying to compose myself** and try the door handle, look inside the "heavily tinted" windows and alas -- No Sharon! At that point you paused (thinking "OH my God, how many people saw me do that") and very calmily proceeded back down the hill to the appropriate REALLY BIG TRUCK and a quiet explanation to a few. Then I read the part about us laughing at our Mama and am overcome with guilt (NOT).
Really, we were just laughing with you! Thanks for the Monday am laugh. Just one more of those great memories
