Pleasantly Surprised

9 years ago

Convo with my mother via phone earlier this week:

Mom:
You know, Mic, you've really surprised me with your domesticity and
your little creative ways. Because when you were growing up I really
didn't think...I mean, I didn't see it coming.

Me: What? really? what does that even mean?

Mom:
Well, you know, like the house stuff and the crafty stuff. Just didn't
see it coming, that's all. For awhile there, you just... you know.

Me: Ummm, I am so writing this down.

Mom: What? Don't you dare! You are NOT writing this down!

Me: Yes, yes I am. I'm typing it right now. And I'm going to blog about it.

Mom: Oh NO-YOU-WILL-NOT! you can NOT blog about me behind my back. I MEAN IT!

Me: *silent with typing noises in the background*

Mom:
MICCOLENE---You are gonna get it, that's all! I'm gonna come get you in
the night! No, I'm gonna start my OWN blog and then you'll be really
sorry!

Me: Yeah, still typing. This is good stuff.
