|Dad and 20 Something|
I'm hanging with my mom and dad this afternoon. My mom made me tea and a great grilled cheese sandwich for lunch. Sometimes I get nervous about getting old, but when I hang out with my parents, I relax about it. They still know how to have a good time.
My mom has some serious hearing loss, but she's usually fairly amused about it. Yesterday I commented to her about a fave kin who is into meditation now.
"What for?" asked my mom, sounding kind of upset.
"I guess because she likes it," I responded.
"That's not good!" She replied emphatically.
"What's wrong with meditation?" I asked back.
"Oh!" my mom laughed. "I thought you said medication." Then we laughed for a long time. My mom says that hearing loss can be hilarious. Last week, my brother remarked, "Lots of millionaires in this country now." My mom heard, "Lots of mayonnaise in this country now." She asked why mayonnaise was getting so popular all of a sudden. I'm kind of looking forward to losing my hearing. That's going to be good blogging material.
I wish my parents lived a little closer to me. We've had a lovely holiday together. Thanks, M and D.
