Not Always Related, Romantic, Or Working

(My father has passed away recently. A few weeks later my mom comes from out of state to visit. While we are out for lunch, we see a sign that a local store is having a retirement/going out-of-business sale. Mom wants to look around, and see if there was something she would like. We pick up a salesman (the retiring owner), who follows us around. I am 50; my mom is 20 years my senior.)

Mom: “Your dad would have liked this. I miss him so much.”

Me: “So do I. Love you, mom.”

(Gives her a hug.)

Salesman: “Ah, yes, young love.”

(We didn’t buy anything.)
