We have a mystery to solve!
Hi, Eva here.
I’ve written before about people watching, and I have another incident that just begs for a story to be written about it. So, after you read this, please let me know your thoughts.
Not too long ago, I was waiting in my doctor’s office when a woman and a little boy came out of an exam room. The woman sat without a smile. She avoided eye contact. The boy went to play with a toy on the floor. He seemed about five or six years old and happy enough. He had a coughing fit, and so let’s assume the appointment was for him. The woman sat with her back straight, her eyes fixed on the boy. Her short hair was dyed blonde. She could have been an older mother, who’d had a hard life, which added years to her appearance, but I believe she was old enough to be his grandmother. Her build was plump, in a stocky, beefy way. Her whole aura screamed, “Don’t mess with me.” Even though her nails were femininely manicured with clear polish and red tips. And yes, I’m certain it was nail polish and not blood. Lol
The boy said, “Grandma.”
She said, “Excuse me?”
He froze, except for his innocent face that turned up to look at her. “Gloria,” he corrected himself.
“That’s better,” she told him.
So, what do you make of this?
Why would she not want him to call her Grandma?
Was she actually even his grandma?
Please, tell me what you think and let's solve this mystery!
