Family Reunion.

Written by sally @ 11:17 am — Section: sally

Last Sunday Gorjus and I went to the Dairy Queen in South Jackson — as you do — and in front of us in the drive-thru line was a car with its door open. You know, standard window-don’t-roll-down-nomore style.

That’s a pretty newish car for the window to be jacked up, Gorjus said. What is that, a 95 or so?
Eh, it’s probably later than that. My Honda was a 99 and it was much boxier than that.
Did you say foxier?
No. Boxier.
LOOK AT MY FOXY CAR YEAHHHH.

The driver of the car with the malfunctioning window got out of her car to retrieve her dipped cone.

God, what is she, 100 years old?
OH MY GOD! THAT IS MY GREAT AUNT MONA.

And it was! She’s my grandmother’s sister. I only had a moment to decide if I wanted to say hi, and maneuvering cars was going to be tricky.

You want me to pull up next to her? Gorjus asked.
Nah. She’ll probably shoot us.

And like that, the moment passed.
