When I talk about the Captain, people often ask me, "Is Ex dating?"
Why? Why do they ask? And why do they think I know the answer? And why do they think I care?
Usually I say, "I don't know - but I hope so. I hope he can
find someone who can tolerate his curmudgeony ass find someone to enjoy life with him. "
Last Saturday Son had a college rugby game nearby. Of course I went - so did Ex and his Dad and Uncle. Dad and Uncle still like me, still talk to me. There was some girl? woman? Walking around with them. Eventually I got an up-close look and realized she was older than I thought. She was dressed nicely. Too nicely for Rugby.
Then it dawned on me.
That's his DATE! And they later went to dinner (Son told me - no I didn't ask!!)
So all you curious people who want to know?? YES HE IS DATING! Girlfriend? I don't know.
But her car was not in the driveway when I got home from the piano bar at midnight.
