A Long Long Time Ago

Story Sum

I posted this on Facebook. My mom is not on Facebook. This is for her. I know she’ll laugh.

Maths – I chucked it in as soon as I could. I figured I had to free up time to read the thick Kathleen E. Woodiwiss romance novels I was devouring in the early 1980’s (my measured guess is: you can fit five Mills & Boon between the covers of The Flame and the Flower).

My sons good-naturedly tease me about my maths deficiency. They tease my mom about her Biology F… or was it a G, or even a H? Nannie has seven children. I think she did very practical studies in biology; she also reads medical and midwifery books when feeling studious. Nannie knows her times table…I reach for a calculator and ask people for help.
