Widowing

Elder finally has a Facebook page. Apparently, one of his friends decided he needed to emerge from the Dark Ages and created a page for him, for some reason unexplained to me or my husband giving Elder the status of widower.

When Younger heard me explaining the status to my sister, he corrected me, “Widow.”

I shook my head. “Widower. Widow is a woman, widower is a man.”

“No, no,” he said, shaking his head. Then he explained carefully, “The widower is the one doing the widowing.”

Yeah, not exactly.
