I was intrigued by colored contacts once. I have very dark brown eyes. I bought a pair of saphire blue contacts with no correction, just to change my eye color.
I lived here in Seattle and Michael lived in LA. I flew down for vacation. I arrived at LAX at a fairly slow time. He met me at the gate, running up and swinging me into the air.
He had the biggest grin on his face. Without changing expression, he said, “Mom! I’m so glad you’re here! When we get home you have to take those OUT!”
He hid them from me for my whole vacation.
Michael used to tell anyone who would listen, that I was the smartest person he knew (I think he was the smartest I’ve ever known.) On one visit, his friends were having a birthday party for him.
When we arrived, he introduced me by my given name. After being there for an hour or so, he gathered everyone together and announced that I was the coolest “MOM” on the planet. The party stopped like an E.F. Hutton commercial. (there were several questionable activities going on) But, he didn’t care, he was proud to be my son and wanted everyone to know it.
Thank you… That made me smile and I needed that.
