BB and Ray, I’ll never forget when I met your mom. BB, we were college age, so it was circa 2000 or so, and we were out to dinner with a bunch of Stuy friends. You wanted to give your mom something to take home, a package or bag or something that was heavy and annoying for you to carry. So, you made up to meet her on a random street corner, and I’ll never forget her pulling up in a bright red car, top down, hair blowing, sunglasses, big smile, looking happy and carefree and amazingly cool and trendy and beautiful and young. She was so very different from what I’d been expecting and I was blown away! I’ve always remembered that moment, and all these years later, it still makes me smile and I can still see her clearly in my mind’s eye!
