Motherly Love

Three comments about the blog made to me by my mother during a weekend visit to Long Island:

"Some of the recent posts on the blog have me wondering about you." (Followed by a general shaking of head about the Mooninites clip.)

"This mascot stuff -- what are you, some kind of nut?"

"You haven't been getting a lot of comments lately."

Gee, I hope a lack of comments doesn't mean a lack of love. Many of us would have great cause to be very depressed if this were the true...

And at least your mom reads your blog. My mother can't be bothered. (Yet I still feel compelled to watch my language just in case, which I find terribly annoying.)

I, for one, loved the Mooninites clip. But that may be because I thought I was the only person who enjoyed Aqua Teen Hunger Force in a non-smokey environment.

I've discovered at 30-something, that it is now my mother's job to assume that everything in my life is on the verge of failure (it is my opinion that this is a reflection of her's true), so she approaches all her conversations to me like, 'i hope all is going well with you and that is not going badly...' she actually says this kind of stuff. In fact, it's your family's job to wish, wait and honest-to-god hope, whether secretly or not so secretly, for your fall.

Sorry to have stirred all that up for you, girlpaint. I don't think my mom is rooting for my fall. But I'll monitor the situation more closely.

My mom, to me tonight, "I want to say a few things to you but I'm afraid to."

Moms have a special way.

I love you ASWOBA, I really do.
You certainly are special, and you always give me something special.

p.s. I don't want to scare you, though I think I have a special way of making men afraid...

A comment from ASWOBA'S mother....lest
his equivocation about his mother's support
be taken more seriously than a polite response
to girlpaint, he knows I have no desire to see him fall.
No monitoring needed. This is a mother whose
children have more than exceeded any maternal
expectations I could have dreamed.

Katy's third paragraph says it all.
