Mom: “ Do you really need those black shoes, don’t you have fifty pairs just like them already in your closet?”.
Me: (in my mind) Yes, But I am getting these and I don’t care what you say
Me: (in reality) hangs head down low and puts shoes back on shelf, slowly walking away with a sad face.
Mom: “See, you’re not going to miss them at all AND you’re going to be saving money”.
Me: (in my mind) ROLLS EYES
Me (in reality) “Yes, Mother what your saying makes perfect sense, I am so glad you’re here to help me SAVE (GROAN) my money”.
Me: (in my mind) I am totally coming back after she leaves to get those shoes.
The sad thing is I won’t come back to get the shoes, because I will feel totally guilty and concerned that my mom will jump out of the darkness like a Ninja and catch me in the act of disobeying her. (Yes, I come from a family of Ninjas and Pirates)
But we’ve been playing this game for years and even when I am old and gray and she is like a million years old, we will continue to play this game. But, I wouldn’t change anything about it. I am blessed and have a wonderful mother who if I pouted long enough would go back herself and get me whatever makes me happy.
I am also thinking the BF and I will go see “Kick-Ass” this weekend. We saw “Hot Tube Time Machine” the other day and it was really funny. Plus, they played a ton of music from Poison, and lets just say 80’s Glam Rock makes my heart swoon.
(How can you not love a man who wears more blush and lipstick than you)
Happy Weekend Everyone!!
