Awkward Laughter

Because most things in life are humorous, even when they shouldn't be

Mother Knows Best

Leave a comment

My mother is one of the kindest, funniest and best all-around-wonderful people I know. She drops hilarious pearls of wisdom like an oyster caught in a sandstorm. So in honor of Mother’s Day, I’m resurrecting one of my favorite mom-inspired Facebook posts, circa 2012.

Random thoughts from my mother mid-conversation about how my day went…

Mom: You really need to watch your mouth. You might get in a bad habit and cuss at work.

Me: Why? What did I just say?

Mom: Nothing. I was just remembering how, when you were 3 years old, you used to come home from your dad’s construction site exclaiming: “Get that *@!&# thing plumb.”

Me: Oh. Okay. I’ll keep that in mind, mom.

Given that four months later I celebrated Merriam-Webster’s addition of f-bomb to its dictionary, her concerns about my adult vernacular were warranted.

Happy Mother’s Day, mom! Thank you for inspiring me, making me laugh, and keeping life interesting!

My Silly Mom

Mom in all of her goofy gloriousness
