So, it's Aunt Lois's 80th birthday tomorrow! The fam threw her a surprise birthday party last Sunday.
I wanted to do something BIG for the anniversary of her blessing the earth. What could be greater than having a scholarship created in your honor? A scholarship awarded to a student from your high school alma mater. I pitched the idea to a couple family members. I called a few educational institutions. I had to ask her permission to create this scholarship. She said that she wasn't comfortable with it.
She put the kabash on my plans, thoughts, sentiments.... needless and needleless to say, I was a bit crushed.
