I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a pest. Sometimes when I’m out with Jen, I’ll sneakily reach over and tickle her while pretending I did nothing. It drives her nuts, but it used to make her mom smile. When I used to drive them around, Jen’s mom would sit in the back. When I was stopped at a red light I’d sneak a tickle. Jen would scold me and then her mom would say “Listen to Jen, Michael.” Then I’d turn around and she’d wink at me and whisper “Do it again!” So I would, and Jen wouldn’t believe me that her mom was encouraging me!
Jen’s mom was a special lady. We only lost her two years ago, so I’m always happy to share those stories that make us smile.
