Ninety One

We went to Mike's grandmother's 91st birthday party today.

How some people get to be 91 and some don't get to be 1 is beyond me.

We walked in there and I hated coming to this family gathering without my little girl.

I hated that people talked and cooed and played with all the other kids and no one gave even a thought to Eva. Although maybe they gave her a thought. Who knows?

But I did manage to squeeze her into one conversation. I felt better then and able to function once her life had been acknowledged once.

Also, shit, I hate August so much.

  1. Oh, that hurts. The apparent forgottenness. I'm glad you were able to say Eva's name.
