It Finally Happened–They thought I was his Mother!

About a year ago, I warned my co-author, Weston Lyon, that if anyone ever thought I was his mom, we couldn’t hang around together anymore.  Well, last week, it happened.

We hugged when we met for lunch, as we were happy to see each other.  We had not been able to get together for a few months.  We happily ordered and ate our Thai food.

As I returned from the rest room, I noticed Weston talking to the waiter and I asked him what they were talking about.  He told me that the waiter had asked if this was an early “Mother’s Day” celebration.

Aaaakkk! It finally happened!  Of course, I am old enough to be his mother, but, that is not the point. I smiled and said, “Oh, that’s too bad, I was going to leave him a nice tip!”

When our young waiter brought the bill, I said, “I’ll get it, son,” to Weston. The waiter freaked out a little, and said in a slightly panicked tone, “I’m sorry!  You guys have the same noses!”

I just laughed.  He looked relieved when he realized that I had still given him a tip.

I hope Weston enjoyed his lunch as we will only be talking on the phone from now on.
