Me: Well you look rather happy.
Beaumont: That’s because I am.
Me: You’re welcome.
Beau: What for?
Me: I’m the one who suggested to your dad he ask Tamz to come and stay with you while he came out to the coast to join me.
Beau: Well that was a no-brainer.
Me: He could have put you in a kennel.
Beau: I doubt it. He’s not like that.
Me: Well… I’m glad to see you’re having a good time.
Beau: Sure you are.
Me: Honest. I am.
Beau: Right. And that’s why you left me for a month?
Me: I’m coming home a few days early.
Beau: Why bother? Tamz and I are having a great time together. You may as well keep galivanting around the country. It’s not like I missed you or anything.
Me: Beau… I missed you.
Beau: Could have fooled me! You never even called.
Me: That’s not true. I did. You wouldn’t look at the phone when I was talking to your dad. You just ignored me.
Beau: I was busy.
Me: What? Sleeping?
Beau: Well I’m not going to drop everything just because you called!
Me: You could have at least looked up from your nap.
Beau: That would have ruined the effect of napping.
Me: Well, I’ll be home tonight.
Beau: Good for you.
Me: Aren’t you just a little bit excited to see me?
Beau: Not particularly. I’m quite happy with my girlfriend Tamz.
Me: Don’t be so insensitive.
Beau: Oh lady. You ain’t seen nothing yet. Wait until you get home and I give you the cold shoulder.
Me: You wouldn’t do that.
Beau: Wait and see. Wait and see.
Sigh. C.C. and I are on our way home. I’ve been away for a month (I know — I haven’t been keeping up to date with Beau’s conversations) — but I’ve been visiting my grandson and daughter, my sister, friends, wineries, walking beaches, playing in the sun. All in all, having a wonderful time.
I’m just kind of worried what I’m going to come home to. When I facetimed with C.C. before he came out to join me last week, Beau wouldn’t even look at me on the phone!
Oh well, we’ll be home tonight — a few days earlier than I planned but C.C. has a commitment tomorrow he needs to keep so we’re finishing off our drive today. And then, life will find its daily rhythm and flow again!
It’s been a wonderful journey — and now, I’m soooo ready to get home — and to see Beau of course!
Grateful for family and friends who took care of our boy when C.C. flew out to drive home with me. I think he got kind of spoiled. As always.
