Have You Ever Found Out Something Surprising About a Family Member?

My dad's father had his tongue & part of his jaw removed due to cancer, but lived more than 20 years after that. He was difficult to understand when he talked, but while he was dying in the hospital, he couldn't talk at all. Now my father thought he knew everything about Grandpa, but all the sudden, on his deathbed, Grandpa started signing to everyone! Thank God a nurse understood, but you could have knocked my dad over with a feather. He never knew his dad knew how to sign, as Grandpa never once brought it up! He asked about it through the nurse and found out that, as a boy, Grandpa had a deaf friend, so he taught himself sign language. And more than 70 years later, without ever practicing it, or telling anyone he new it, he just starts when he's dying! Oh, and he was indignant nobody understood him, too!

Anybody in your family surprise you with something you found out about them?

(Yes, this is a reprise of a discussion I started many months ago, but it deserved more play and we have many new people!)

welllll, my sister, who gave up living life about 25 years ago & let herself go, extremely so - appearance & attitude, etc. she told me about 6 months ago that she had sex several times w/ a guy the previous year. given she hadn't had sex w/ or anyone even interested in her for like 30 - 35 years I initially thought it was amazing. to tell you the truth, though, I don't believe her. it's just too bizarre, coming from her.

I am sorry she has been so depressed! Maybe it did happen and if it did, that's a good sign!

I did find out within the last year that my mother has actually been listening to me when she asks for advice from me for sexual things such as toys, lingerie, and if I knew any sites to spice up a love life (did direct her to here but I know she never signed up), particularly about blow jobs. Though honestly...I don't think I needed to know what she's done to my father...Thanks ma.

Honestly it shocks me because she never listens to me (to her I'm wrong in every possible way imaginable).
