- The Gym Teacher- Part 2 (c)
- By the time we got to my house it was after 5pm and mom and dad were both there. When we came into the kitchen, mom was fixing dinner. She looked up and saw us both and said, oh Carol, how are you? She of course said fine. Mom asked what she needed. I said Carol and I have been out on the boat all day, and I was with her last night too. My mom goes, oh really. I said yes. She asked if we wanted to stay for dinner but I said we just got done eating at Pickle Bill’s just a short time ago. I told her I was going over to carol’s and Carol spoke up and said that she had some friends coming over to go swimming and play some cards later. As I went off to change, mom and Carol talked. Now I had no idea what mom said to her then but found out later on the drive to her place. As we were leaving my mom floored me when she said look, if you are drinking tonight, I would feel better if you just spent the night on Carol’s couch, but call me if you think that will happen so I don’t worry, and remember you said you would finish the trim work on the addition this week. I said I would and we left. As we got in the car, Carol said that she didn’t know i knew how to do work like that. I said yeah, it’s a curse at times, and laughed. She had seen the addition 2 weeks ago but it still needed trim and carpeting and painted too. She then offered to help me, if I wanted it. I said I will let you know, but I am sure you have better things to do. She said I will be there with you and you can use me as you see fit. She then laughed and said your mom was so cute, when you went and changed. She asked when we started dating. Carol said she lied a little and said, we had been out a few times now and that I was a perfect gentleman and was raised well. Mom told her if I didn’t treat her right, let her know and she would set me straight. Carol asked my mom if she had any ill feelings about them dating, especially with the age difference. My mom said no, he is a man now and has a good head on his shoulders and age is just a number. Plus, who knows where it is going to lead right now, but for the Christ sakes, be careful, you two don’t need any kids happening from mistakes. Carol laughed and said no worries there, plus we are not at that stage yet. Slight lie I asked? She laughed and said ok, a big white lie, but we’re not trying to make a baby, and chuckled. Oh by the way, I think I am having a house guest tonight, and winked at me.
