An excerpt from Beware a Dancing Mother-in-Law:
The Truth Dances Right Past Her Suspicions
I finally got curious. And suspicious.
And worried that I was going nuts.
Until the assisted living called and said Fran was dancing again.
Humming up a storm, grinning. Dancing all around her room, and up and down the hallways, too. She even danced all around the cafeteria before settling down to have her lunch.
I was so fixated on proving myself wrong that I grabbed Andy by the arm the second he got home.
We headed for the assisted living, with him staring at me wide-eyed from the passenger seat the whole way while I told him what I was starting to think.
Bless his heart, he listened to me the whole time without laughing or shaking his head or telling me I was indeed going nuts. I didn’t even mind that he didn’t say anything at all. I’m sure he didn’t believe me. But I was grateful he didn’t say so out loud.
I’d imagine he’s grateful too. Now.
