The sister-in-law of the 57-year-old man brought in two photos. The one from high school showed him as a floppy-haired guy with an awkward grin.
“What a great photo,” I said. “I would have totally had a crush on him in high school!”
Later, the 57-year-old man’s brother came in.
“So, I hear you went to high school with my brother,” he said.
“Um, no,” I said, politely not pointing out that my birth mother was too young to have gone to school with his brother.
