bien dicho, Sergio, well said
We will see Tia Carmen tomorrow, where she should be remorseful and apologizing for her tactless remark about this wonderful man who takes such good care of his children—AND OF HER!!!
Speaking of the kids, he should expect nonsense like this from them, not a grown woman.
This made me cry … today would have been my late husband’s birthday. He’s been gone 6 1/2 years.
This is only Tuesday, so I know Carmen’s got a rebuttal. Her generation always does (she reminds me so much of my grandma, an old school French woman, may she rest in peace). Takes a LOT to accept. Maybe not agree, but accept. Can’t speak for the old school Latinas though.
My first husband died very, very, young of a heart attack….my kids were only 9 and 11 at the time. This was 28 years ago and I have remarried and rebuilt my life. I still think of him every day and, having told my second husband stories about him, we talk about him a lot…. but not memories…rather things like, “What would X say about these 80” TVs? Would X have a huge SUV like this one?" Bravo, Sergio. Rosa will always be a special presence and comfort in your heart, but time to rebuild your life. Rosa would have wanted that.
My father was married 61 years before my mother passed away and he never wore his wedding ring when she was alive.
Time to dig out those nursing home brochures and leave them around for Tia Carmen so Sergio can get on with his life! She better shape up ad shut up!
Even so, Sergio, batten down the hatches. Hurricane Carmen is gathering force.
He is so right! My husband passed 30 years ago, but I still carry his love with me in my heart.
She is wrong in this case
Great answer tell her to mind her own business
She’s too nice to really mean it. But you just can’t tell when it comes to the heart. She’ll learn.
Well said, and ironically yesterday was Kobe Byant’s funeral
Perhaps the reason that Tia Carmen’s nose is drawn so small is that the rest of it is always in other people’s business. Not just now but with her gossiping sessions at bingo or on the park bench, she has nose problems.
Are we gonna see this sad mug looking at us all week? Seems the sad face papi stencil is being used quite a bit!
Well said, Sergio. Tia Carmen over-stepped her boundaries, and with that last sentence you put her in her place.
…and it’s hard to pick up women with a ring on your finger.
I wonder if Tia Carmen was ever married herself? In 2007, she sure met a suave, courteous Latin gentleman; did that relationship get started?
Men remarried much faster than widows
Is Carmen is Rosa’s sister?
