You know how some people have those calendars that you rip off a page each day & there's a new motivational quote to read? I've always said that I'm going to make one of these and each day will have a new quote that was said by my mother. One of my favorites is an oldie but goody from years ago:
Me: (circa 1997) So you know how the ship goes down at the end of Titanic?
Mom: (putting hands over ears) la-la-la-la...I'm not listening!
Me: What is wrong with you?
Mom: I haven't seen Titanic yet, don't tell me what happens at the end!!
But that has recently been replaced as my favorite with the conversation that took place when we had Christmas at her house. I got my parents a snapfish calendar with pictures of Jake and it came with all of the holidays filled in. So my mom is flipping through it:
Mom: oh how neat, it puts in the holidays for you. wait, what’s Milk Day?
Me: I have no idea what you’re talking about.
Mom: it says right here, Milk Day.
Me: let me see (examining the calendar) Mom, that says M-L-K Day, as in Martin Luther King Day.
Mom: ooooh. Well that makes sense, I had never heard of Milk Day.
She's a very bright woman who is in charge of the physical and mental health of patients every day...but sometimes it just takes a few minutes for the light bulb to go off for her :) (and if you ever wonder where I get my sometimes lack of common sense, just refer back to this post...)
