So my mother has been spending a lot of time at my house as I figure out what to do with the next stage of my life and I find our conversations quite amusing as we really don’t communicate at all. We were in the grocery store the other day and she asked me “Do you like apples?” I said “Mom, ya know me. The only fruit I really like is watermelon.” I think my mother has tried to get me to eat apples at least a hundred times in my lifetime so I just laughed it off.
The very next day she is in the kitchen cutting up a salad for me while I am in the office next to the kitchen on the computer. Our conversation went like this: MOM: “Ya know what’s really good in salad? Apples.” ME: “Mom….I don’t like apples.” MOM: “Ya know I could get some and cut them up in your salad.” ME: “I don’t like apples.” MOM: “I saw some at a really good price the other day. Next time I’m at the store I’ll get some.” ME: Mom…I like watermelon. I don’t like apples.” MOM: Well watermelon is not in season right now so I’ll get some apples.” ME: They’ll go to waste. Again….I don’t like apples.” MOM: “Really? I thought you just didn’t like biting into them (not kidding).” ME: I HATE APPLES! FOR THE LAST TIME, APPLES SUCK, I GAG, I PUKE, I ABSOLUTELY HATE APPLES!!! MOM: “Geez…..I’m just trying to feed you.”
I’m actually convinced that there is a school that mothers go to AFTER their kids leave the house so they have the ability to drive us nuts. Hang on a sec…..Mom asking me a question. “Do you like pears?” ARRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!
