The notice to caregivers was: Celebrate Scarf Day, tomorrow! Everyone is invited to wear a scarf.
That was all I needed.
The next morning I rummaged through mom’s dresser drawers until I stumbled on the perfect Scarf Day scarf (the only scarf I could find). I wrapped it around her neck and drove her adult daycare, otherwise known as heaven on earth!
I love Circle Center and the angels who work there! If they had an Early Bird Special, I would sign myself up for sometime in the future, right now.
When we arrived, I made sure mom’s scarf was snug around her neck before we made the grand entrance. After inspection, I gave her a big hug and told her just how good looking she was in that scarf. I believe I followed that with one word … HOT!
She looked at me and said, “I know I’m good looking, but that does not mean I am planning on marrying anyone today. No sir. Maybe I will later, but not today!”
Before leaving, I scribbled out the following message and hung it on the bulletin board.
To Whom It May Concern: I know my mom, Helen, is as good looking as they come, but Scarf Day is strictly Scarf Day!
Mom is not planning on marrying anyone today, nor will she be until further notice. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation, Tom Laughon
