My mother is on an Alaskan cruise. It's something she's always wanted to do her whole life and now at 70 something years old, she is sailing around Alaska, enjoying every minute of it. She called to check in and see how things are going with us and I filled her in on our little lives and also that I had a bad bout of food poisoning last week. And this was our exchange after I told her about the food poisoning:
mom: "Damn it. Don't do that again!"
me: "Do what? Eat???"
mom: "Eat something with food poisoning."
me: "Ohhh. Ok, I should have known better."
I'm actually responding with "I should have known better" a lot lately. It's just easier that way.
But I also think the 20+ hours of daylight are starting to give my mom the sillies.
