It wasn't my intention to make this a series but I had to share the exchange we had last night when I picked up the Princess from Mother's house after work.
"Chris...I don't want to hurt your feelings but...." and off she walked into the other room.
Oh shit, I thought. Here it comes. Is she going to tell me I am gaining weight or that I kept the teeth whitener on too long again? Am I going to be advised that she doesn't like my new haircut, nail shape or taste in clothing? Is my front lawn too long or did she see too many weeds in the front garden when she picked up the Princess? DOES MY HOUSE NEED PAINTING??? OH. MY. GOD. Just SAY it bitch!"
Ok, I am calm now...
She returns with a plastic bag.
"I don't want to hurt your feelings but those Gucci glasses you gave me for Christmas are just sitting here and I will never wear them so I am giving them back to you"
SCORE! I loved those glasses but being the wonderful daughter that I am, thought I would treat my mother to something that isn't 2 for 10 at the local Walmart.
"No problem," I responded. "I'd rather take them than have them not used."
I put them on this morning on the way to work and I was stylin'!
I quickly punched her number...
"Hello, Mom? Thanks for the glasses. I am going to come up with something really good that you're not going to want this year too!"
