At some point, most of Francine’s friends have said,
“What I remember most about Fran is her sense of humor.”
That’s probably because, from the time I first met her, she could go from this…
…in a moment.
For years I fell for her April Fool’s joke in which she would advance the time on every clock in the house and wake me up saying something like, “You’re going to be late if you don’t get going!” And then she would go about whatever she would normally do with a sly, barely perceptible smile.
Once I got all the way to work and wondered why isn’t anyone else here?
After about five years of that, I caught on to that smile.
