Was No Honeymoon Boon

| Related | March 2, 2015

(I’m about six years old, and my mother has recently remarried.)

Me: “Mom, what’s a honeymoon?”

Mom: “Um… It’s where couples go once they get married so they can get to know each other a little better.”

Me: “Oh. Did you get to know [Stepdad] better on your honeymoon?”

Mom: *disappointed* “No… not really.”

(Almost 20 years later, I suddenly remembered what she said, and it finally dawned on me what she meant by it. I’m really wishing I could forget it again.)
