My mom isn’t saying I need to lose weight, but since I mentioned it earlier, just so I know, So-and-So just died of a heart attack at age 43 because she was overweight.
She also had high blood pressure and smoked, which Mom knows I don’t do, but… just, you know… “It’s not just about vanity.”
“Well, yeah, but my health is fine at this weight. Blood pressure, cholesterol, it’s all perfect.”
“Yeah, I know, but you have to keep it that way.”
So I guess “Don’t get any fatter” is the sage wisdom getting passed down through the generations this Mother’s Day?
Cool. Noted. Someone put that shit on a Hallmark card.
And it was on the way out the door, too. My mom is a fucking MASTER of the emotional drive-by.
“I wasn’t trying to say you need to lose weight.”
“I really don’t know what else you could’ve been trying to say, Mom.”
Aaand SCENE. Her husband got in the car and drove them away.
We win at communication.
P.S. Why, yes, she DID send me home with cake and soft pretzels, why do you ask?
