Transgression by the Sip
Posted July 31, 2015
As number four of five children I should have known if I was alone with my mother I must be in trouble.
Early one morning she announced, “You and I are going out for high tea this afternoon.”
Reflexively nervous I asked, “Just the two of us?”
She nodded. My mind went wild. What had I done to deserve a one-on-one punishment so far from my room? A bit nervous and a lot confused I walked out the back door and visited our horse Queenie. She and Mom were close. Queenie might know what this was all about.
