They jumped around in their boring reminiscing

    When you realize that your mother is more than likely doing this deliberately because he didn't take her with him, maybe the order isn't that important after all.

    Maybe your mom is reminiscing about the times she slaved...er, worked for your dad. It'd be like if Connie and your mom talked about your dad's practise, and your mom's only recalling the parts she remembers from when she worked there, or when she was worked on there.

    i dunno, patrickrsghost, my mom was there 4 all the pics in those photo collections and she's reminiscing abt 'em outta order. mayB it's just the order she's thinking of them in, i guess. or dc2's explanation. it's hard 2 say, and i won't bother asking my mom, cuz she'll probably just tell me 2 go outside and trap a bird.

    Formerly little sis. You can see in the part of mom’s story you referenced from the group of pictures, exactly where Dad’s mistake was. He called mom a “klutz and a dummy”. Yes, April. He used an insult beginning with a “k”, the most hated of all letters to a Patterson. That is almost like comparing someone to a Kelpfroth or a Krelbutz. It is no wonder that mom was so offended and took it personally. Dad should know better. Calling someone st00pid is much better and does not use the offensive “k”.

    I think going to see Sex and the City with you and Jeremy and my wife Beatrice is an excellent idea. I can’t wait to see all the fashions and the girl talk. See you tonight.

    Hello, April Patterson. My name is Lionel Freckleface, and I learned about your blog in a rather unusual way. A friend of mine, someone I've known since grade 2, told me a saw an old picture of me taken at a dental visit from 1980. Naturally, I was curious, so I followed the link (which he e-mailed me) to your blog entry for yesterday. I was the little boy who was present when your mother wanted to discuss your father's sock placement. Yes, I was your father's patient way back then. I was seven years old at the time.

    I had forgotten, or probably "repressed" is a better word, that incident until I read your entry and saw the photograph of me in that chair. It was very disturbing to me that my dentist was having an argument with the "assisting lady," as I used to call her at age seven.

    I remember telling my mother about the incident afterwards. She decided that this was very unprofessional and that I should see a different dentist. As it happens, my father was transferred to the Burlington branch of his business, so I had to get a new dentist anyway. Our new dentist never had such arguments during an exam!
