Coffeetime with Mom

December 23, 2012

Coffee and toast

Mom: Do you like the coffee?
Suebob: Sure, it’s good.
Mom: Is it too strong?
Suebob: No, it’s fine.
Mom: I made it stronger.
Suebob: Better than the weak stuff you usually make.
Mom: This is strong enough?
Suebob: Yes, plenty strong.
Mom: I put a scoop and a half to one thing of water.
Suebob: Mmm.
Mom: I could put one scoop.
Suebob: No, a scoop and a half is good.
Mom: Better than one scoop?
Mom: You don’t have to yell.

    Hysterical — and yet so true of our relationship with Mom. My mom’s been dead more than a decade and yet I still hear her voice “correcting” me when I know it’s just me trying to measure up to a standard that never existed.. Time to set both me and my Mom free, yes?
