I was actually afraid to try for fear of looking like an idiot.Until the summer I turned seventeen, Mom worked evenings or nights because of the shift differential.
Because of working as much as possible it took me an extra year to graduate high school.
My working also kept me from attending the school social functions.
Interactions with my age group were limited to classroom time. Mom and I were not able to spend much time together due to both of us working different hours.
She didn’t push me to date much because our conversations were limited and money was so tight.
It was not uncommon for one of us to parade through the house from the bathroom to laundry area in our skivvies.
Mom always wore utilitarian undergarments, choosing function over style.
Incest story, mom and son romance, Growing up in East Texas in the 1950’s and 60’s wasn’t easy. Her pay was low since she wasn’t a Registered Nurse.
She was a Licensed Vocational Nurse, working shift work at the hospital in town.
The paychecks were a real help with the household expenses.
I was able to start buying tools and begin saving for a used truck.
Dad’s insurance barely paid off the house and covered his funeral expenses.
