A Family Secret

Modern Families

If one of your late ancestors were to come back from the dead and join you for dinner, what things about your family would this person find the most shocking?

Not a good question. It eliminates many. Not all families have shocking elements, perhaps intriguing or interesting would do just as well.

Let’s say my Grandfather Jim (father’s side), who died in 1933, suddenly sprung to life. I could ask him a question about something recently discovered about he and my Grandmother, his wife. “Grandpa, I noticed something; Grandma was just a little more than three months past her 15th birthday when you two married. It was just beyond seven months when she gave birth to your first child. How did you avoid jail time, given the fact you were 24? Just curious. I know Grandpa, you should be turning in your grave right now.”

Here is the link to my short story for the day, The scent of a Woman and Coffee.
