As The World Turns


True to form, it didn't take too long until Moochie lost or sold or totaled the car, whatever. My mother breathed a huge sigh of relief, knowing there would be no more sneak attack visits. Life moved on. I grew up and left home. My parents and sister moved to a nearby city.

We heard about 10 years later that Moochie and the wife had separated. We assumed it was just a case of welfare fraud so that they could claim more assistance as two single people than as a married couple. But it turned out to actually be true. One day, out of the blue, Moochie showed up in the city and declared himself to be a single man. And -- even more shocking -- he was working.

Well, so to speak.

during teddy's recovery, i am reading this story to her. we are both on the edge of our seats! what could moochie finally have found to spark him out of retirement? i am thinking he became a politician since that is where you do the least to make the most amount of money. even inside the cone of shame teddy waits to hear more!

Hhhhmmm.... Several possibilities come to mind regarding Moochie's "job", but a preacher would seem to fit him best. Can't wait till tomorrow's installment......

Loving this series. My guess for the "job": a get rich quick pyramid scheme.
