What's Mom Now--Part-Time or No-Time?

More on the stupid-boring gardening convo between Mom an' Connie. They were putting away the gardening supplies when Connie asked Mom, "Do U really want 2 B a full-time parent again?" Hearing abt that made me go "BWUH?" Isn't Mom supposed 2 still B a "full-time parent" 2 ME? Normal parents don't stop thinking of themselves as "full-time parents" when their youngest is 17 (or really last yr when I turned 16), rite? I'm not tripping, rite? B-sides, did a miss a memo abt Mike, Dee, Liz, and Anthony all moving 2 Ecuador and leaving Merrie, Robin, and Francie w/Mom?

Gah. NEway, on 2 Mom's dumb response 2 Connie's dumb question. Mom dumbly sed, "No. 2 B honest, I just don't have the energy." [2 remember I xxist.] Mom went on w/"I used 2 B able 2 chase kids all day, Connie. Especially Michael. When my Mom sed she hoped I'd have a child xxactly like I was--she got her wish!" Wow. So Grandma Marian was a mean and spiteful old bird. Nice.

Then Mom continued, and decided 2 work in the current retcon abt Michael: "Michael drove me crazy. But he was smart and funny and I loved him. ...And when I look back @ it all, he made me what I am 2day." Connie prompted Mom, with "Proud? Confident?" And Mom went 4 her punchline: "Um... Tired, actually. Just tired." Connie did an ugly-faced sticky-outy tongue laff rite on cue.

Uh-oh ppl. Look @ this sitch. It's Saturday. I just finished telling U a CONNIE story ending w/Mom reminiscing abt chasing Mike and Nizzie when they were little, and how Mike made Mom all kinds of tired. What does this sound like the prep 4? Yeah, I'm thinking it, 2. Prolly a wk's worth of "ZOMG NO! FLASHBACKS!" :(

Jeremy, def movie and pizza. Wow, I can't believe Brad Luggsworth's side gig. I guess being a cop doesn't pay as much as he'd hoped, eh?

    so i xxplained & mom called up ur mom & sed sumthin' weird like, "april's marks will b out next week 4 the 'rents 2 pick up. shud i get april's while i get jeremy's?" & that led 2 a whole, "april, who?" & "april, ur daughter thass who." & "my daughter's name is elizabeth who's gettin' married & i am a full-time mom for my little girl, meredith" & "no, u have a 17-year-old named april 2." & "ur just makin' that up" & "no. remembah my son jeremy tried 2 kill her once & got hit by a truck." & "oh, i remembah. then we were so noble & came 2 visit him in hospital." & "yes, april & u went 2 visit my son" & "didn't u think we were noble? & "yes u were v. noble. now admit u have a daughter named april." & "oh all right. but she's not my favrite. i'm gonna talk 'bout my son all next week." & "thass just gr8. bye now."

    neway, u seem 2b back 2 normal. but the worse part is that mom wunted me & u2 show my step-dad & her how 2 do ur favrite thing. omg. thass gotta b the most embarrassin' evah. i mean. i h8 it wen peeps watch. absolutely h8 it. it's like they're sum kinda voyeurs, eh? so, neway. i hadda teach mom & step-dad how 2 do that tango step u like so much. so embarrassin'.
