When Mom has a date!


Here's the thing. My mom has been

widowed for ten years. In that time,

she has never gone on a date. No, not

even one. You see my dad, Charlie

Cooper, was always the life of the

party, and there was not a day in their

married life that he didn't make my

mom laugh. When his cigar loving

size twelves stomped off to the big

steakhouse in the sky, well, he was

a tough act to follow.

Now, I know I should be happy for her, but I can't help feeling like every worried

parent when their daughter goes on her first date. Is there a man good enough

for my mom? Not hardly.
Uh oh, mom just called me from her date. Slight problem -- he's dead!

  1. That's not a good start to a date.

  3. Oh, no, mom's not having much luck. I would imagine you'd better find out who did it. Just to help mom out. Otherwise she might not get back on the saddle...
