After I finished lunch, I walked towards the kitchen. Mom and Dad were still at the table and she said, "Claire, speaking of old age..."
I sighed and wondered, What now?
As I set my plate in the dishwasher, Mom called after me, "Do you know what today is?"
"Thursday," I replied.
Clearly not what she was going for. Grandparents Day? I think that's in the spring sometime. For once I actually knew the date. As it came to me, I called out, "Happy Anniversary!"
"Very good," Mom said, "Thank you. I'd forgotten it too."
