A little over a month later, Mikey got his first thirty-day clean AA key tag. Sheila couldn’t have been more proud of him. Two of his golf buddies went to see him get his tag. Mikey’s friend Derrick thought Mikey had been sucked in by AA zealots and would drink again within a month.
Devin told his mother Lori had changed her plans. They would both be going to Pitt in the fall. Sheila was truly happy for them.
Tiffany played so well in Florida, she was invited to join an elite squad traveling to England. The only downside was Tiffany prepared for her trip by speaking in an “‘orrible” cockney accent. Sheila had no idea why.
Repugnant started to lose weight. Cats were supposed to be aloof, but Sheila noticed Repulsive hovering near his friend, restless but attentive. The vet confirmed what the cat had sensed. They buried Repugnant two days before Tiffany left for England. Some would have thought them cold hearted, but they rescued a shelter dog the next day.
Change is often a mixed blessing, but today I will embrace it.
