My mother and I went on another lunch date. This time to celebrate….um nothing. We just like ordering desert.
You know those free post cards nobody takes because everyone’s afraid of being judged by random strangers they will never meet again in their lives? I took one!
I thought the PICTURE was funny. I did not read it. Mom read it for me “His Brief Case. A digital exploration of a man’s private affairs”. Usually my go-to answers for situations like this involve acting stupid and pretending that I just don’t get it. So, with the most convincing confused look I could mange, I immediately responded “What does that mean?”. She totally bought it! I mean, I guess she did, you never know. Maybe its one of those parenting techniques. Whatever it is we were off the subject since she obviously did not want to explain to her daughter what that meant.
You would think that the embarrassing moment for the day was over, but it wasn’t.
On the way back home we stopped at a traffic signal, and I was singing to Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night when my mom turns to me and says “The dresses in that store are so ugly! Who would wear those?!” I look for the store, but I can’t see anything. So she points……to a lingerie store (not just a lingerie store, like say Victoria’s Secret where everything is nice and classy, the other kind. With crotch holes. Need I say more?) . “Yes, mom, those dresses are very ugly. No, I don’t know who would where them.” I managed to say without laughing or showing my mortification. I know you think she was probably just messing with me. But she wasn’t. My mother was dead serious. I’ve convinced myself that she is old enough to have bad eyesight so could not see the crotch holes.
I’m probably going to get nightmares about that now.
Way to go mom! I had a lot of fun, I love going out with you! 😀
