I wasn't going to tell this, but after Big's story...

Since my mother has almost no sight left, I've started taking her to the grocery store for her weekly shopping trip. I've noticed she has a habit of dead-stopping in the middle of the aisle, grabbing a package and asking me what it is. Now this isn't a big problem, but last week we were walking through the pharmacy section when she stopped, grabbed a small package and asked be what it was and if she needed any.
"They're condoms, Mom, and if you think you need them, go for it."
It to ten minutes (and several people asking if we were all right) before either of us could get our breath back. It was good to hear her laughing again. They've been kind of few and far between lately.

Bob
