What I recall about that conversation between my mother and Jason’s mother was my mother telling her to keep her private life private. That it was no one’s business.
I had taken those words and lived by them.
That is, until I found out the truth about Jason’s mother.
Whether my mother knew the whole story or only part can be argued, but the fact was the advice my mother gave was the worst ever.
When I heard the true story about Jason’s mother, I didn’t really think of her, I thought of my mother.
I wondered how much truth she had ever shared with me.
