It was a typical August afternoon for Florida Temperatures simmered in the eighties and the humidity was so thick you could cut it with a knife My mother was outside gardening and I stuck my head out the front door to ask her how she could endure the heat She replied I wont be long I just want to get these ferns planted My mother has never demonstrated a talent for gardening nor a desire She was covered from head to feet with potting soil and surrounded by her miniature gardening tools I laughed at the ludicrous sight of her peering up at me from her unprecedented perch Her sweat-soaked hair stuck wetly to cheeks blackened by stray potting soil and her bare toes peeked from beneath a flowered sundress too pretty for such arduous work Whats your sister doing she asked on a sigh wiping her brow with the back of her gloved hand Im putting away my new school clothes Mom Katie my younger sister by one year poked her head out her bedroom window one ear stuck to her hot-pink telephone Can Chrisi spend the night Katies head disappeared back to where it sprang from You could pour us both a cold glass of lemonade my mother hinted up at me hopefully We dont have any ice left Mom Just then my grandmother 77 years old pulled up in the driveway sporting her new black 1998 Buick Regal I sprang across the lawn and greeted her with a hug calculating that within a month and a half I would be able to drive the sleek machine My grandmother who everyone affectionately calls B had come to invite us to go shopping with her at Bealls department store None of us could go Mom needed to go grocery shopping my sister was expecting her friend over and I had already planned on seeing a movie with my friend Carla
