Sharon's nephew has just bought the place, and is clearing out the broken trucks and refrigerators that the previous owner left down by the creek, and figuring out whether to repair or replace the untended-for-ten-years mobile home. Sharon is staying there, in an RV.
As we were catching up on each other's news, Sharon said to R (Neal's girlfriend), "And you've certainly grown up!" Awkward!
R said, "I'm not the daughter." And we moved on to talk about what our kids and Sharon's daughter were up to.
That would have been so much easier if I had not been there! Though Neal would still have had to cope with the "Yes, this person is closer in age to my children than to me and yes, she is my partner."
