"I know you're sad. Why don't you tell me a little bit about her?"
I had my head resting on Bill's shoulder as we both sat on the couch watching TV.
"Well, she's the only grandparent I ever knew. We used to do all kinds of stuff when I was a kid. Polly and Brandon used to always be around, too, and it made me jealous. I wanted Granny all to myself. It wasn't until later when that happened."
"Because when we were teens, they thought they were too cool to be with Granny. I never thought that. I never thought I was too cool for anything."
"Maybe you can get Granny to video chat with you. Does she have a computer?"
I sat upright. That was it. Granny does have a computer, a fairly new one, too.
I turned to Bill and gave him a big kiss. "Bill, you're a genius. How did I get this lucky to have you in my life?"
"No, I'm the lucky one." Bill paused. "Hey, have you ever been to a basketball game?"
