Well, it’s official. Henrietta has been, at the very least, (to hear her tell it), leered at by a pervert. She has been waiting for the majority of her life to be able to have verifiable proof that men are after her. Oh yes. At 87 years old… it’s here.
Her proof of this came several weeks ago, in the way of a breaking news story that was about, Dr. Bernard Albina, her old orthopedist from years ago when she and Marcos were living in their house. We took her to all of the appointments she ever had with him, as Marcos didn’t drive anymore at that point.
The news story? Sadly, he was, apparently, a really busy pedophile. While that is in itself, not the least bit funny, her take on it was, predictably, aaaaall about her. She was absolutely agog and went on and on about how she never trusted him and how Marcos used to ask if he had to go with her to her appointments and she, “always told him yes, he had to go”, because she didn’t trust that man! “Oooooh, no Krissa! I knew there was something wrong with him! Just the way he looked at me!”
I never did point out that it was ME who had gone in with her to every single appointment and, clearly, an octogenarian is not going to do it for a pedophile. Whatever. She could not get enough of the local news and the articles about it in the paper. She has told every single person who will listen to her about the peril she was in and how that man just wanted so badly to get her alone.
Sigh. If it wasn’t so sad it’d be funny. OK, maybe it’s funny, anyway.
