Family resemblance.

Walking along with my mother while she was in town. Sign.


I said, “But I don’t want healthy Japanese food.”

Mom said, “I thought you liked Japanese.”

“When it’s dead! Not when it’s healthy!”

She said, “I wished you’d been around more when Andy was growing up. The girls have the same kind of mindset, and Matt can fit into that when he’s around. Andy’s different. He’s been off in his own little world for a long time. You know when he saw that sign he said the same thing.”

When we caught up to him, I asked him if he’d seen the sign. He hadn’t. I started to tell the story, and he laughed as soon as I told him what the sign said.
