when scott called charlie on friday to check in and mentioned we wouldn't be visiting him this weekend, charlie said he would miss us. so, we felt bad and told him saturday night that we would come on sunday and take him out to lunch.
well, when we got there charlie had 'just' decided he wanted to go someplace else and it was for old people. translation, not with us. we usually go with the flow, but it was a beautiful day and we changed our plans for him. we were furious and said so.
after a rather loud discussion and in an effort to move on, which charlie mentioned several times, he told us he had gotten a manicure & pedicure earlier that week. we all laughed so hard at the thought of it and i don't think his nails have ever looked better. i think he's going to do it, again.
ps for our new readers, charlie is scott's father and ever since scott's mom, helen, passed away a couple of years ago, he's become kind of like our son.
