It was after storytime and I was trying to sort through the pile of papers and books overflowing my desk...I looked up and noticed grandparents taking their storytime grandson home.
"Have a good afternoon," I said smiling.
The Grandma says to her husband...oh do you know Not Emily?
He looks at me and you could see the husband oh-no-I-don't-know look on his face..and I said, "no we don't."
She introduces me as my Grandmas grand-daughter, which I love, and then I said to him..."Oh I've seen pictures of you."
The picture I was thinking of was my Uncle (who I never met--he died when my mom was a baby from a motorcycle accident) and this man, plus a group of other boys who all were around bicycles. It was from the 50's. Black and white. Snazzy.
And then this man says to me, "OH you probably don't know about post World War II and your uncle and I."
