Or maybe it's just me.... but some people are just plain weird!
Yesterday mom and I drove over to visit with one of my brothers. Had a nice visit. Lovely weather here and the countryside is simply gorgeous. I'm digressing so anywho, on the way home we go through the small town I grew up in. I decided to take a small detour up a hill to the house we used to live in. Drove down past it, commented on how pretty it looked blah blah blah..... saw several deer cross the road and snapped a few pics of them. Turned around headed back up the road and noticed the owners where standing in the yard. I pull up to the fence/gate thing and waved at them. They walk up to the gate, I get out and say my hello's and tell them we lived there 40 years ago, built that barn, dug that well and used to swing in a tire from that giant oak tree. Harmless right?
Well....when we moved from that place my oldest brother bought the place from my dad. So the people who've lived there 20 + years asked if my brother still lived out the highway, I said yes. Harmless right? So.... mom is out chatting away about the nonsensical stuff she always chats about and I explained several times that she had Alzheimer's and was just remembering things the way she remembers. Harmless right?
The people where nice, I said thank you for allowing us to take a trip down memory lane, shook both their hands and again said how lovely the place looked. Get home, send my brother a text saying they remembered him and the hound dogs he had. Brothers says.... hmmmm, long time ago. Harmless right?
30 minutes later I get another text from my brother saying those people came by his house and asked that we NEVER stop by their house again Wtf? Really?? Seriously? It was 40 years ago.... mom and I were just taking in the scenery and laughing at all the antics that went on wayyyy back then.
This kind of stuff makes me just not want to talk to people if not absolutely necessary.
