12:05 am: explaining. or not!
I went up to my husband's house to have dinner with him and his girlfriend. After dinner, we took the dogs out. We ran into Sharon, who used to live next door. She wanted to buy the place then, but the owner didn't want to sell, and when she moved back into town it stayed empty for ten years.

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."
