Book Excerpt: Peace from Broken Pieces
"Who was in the hot tub?"
"Me, Oluwa, and Jerry. It is really nice. I know you'll love it."
"Are you telling me that you let Jerry into the hot tub with my grandson?"
"Yes, I did."
"Are you crazy?"
"What do you mean?"
Jerry has AIDS. Jerry has full-blown AIDS! He has no business in a hot tub, and he has no business in that hot tub with my grandson or my husband.
"Well, he is my best friend, and I don't have an issue with it."
"Well, you should!"
"You can't catch AIDS like that."
"Did he sweat?"
"I guess so."
"Well, my love, sweat is a bodily fluid and that is how AIDS is transferred. You must be crazy."
"No, I'm not, but you are!"
I am not sure who hung up first. I just know we both did.
