The First Jab

So my 88 y/o mother got off the plane from Fort Lauderdale, gave me a hug hello, and said:

"You need a haircut."

I've got a long two weeks ahead of me. :)

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.
May I suggest drugs, booze, SSRIs to get you through.

Thanks for the dazzling recommendations! I love her, but she's a tough one. Only 13 days left, GT! :)

She wouldn't be a mother if she didn't critique something in the first 5 seconds.

I'm with you. Mine said 'you've put on weight' within 5 seconds. Crazy.

with my mom its all about my weight.
Although she did buy me some silver rinse when I stopped dying my hair.
Just remember the mantra "if mommas not happy then NOBODYS happy". Now I dont know what Nobody has to say about this.

Sans, she definitely rules. I'm at her mercy.

Beth, 30 miles away. I would have to move!

SushiBoy, yes, we are headed out to Atlantic City one day next week. Get this: We can't drive in my sporty Toyota Scion. Oh no. We must take the bus because she prefers it. I have to ride on the bus with all 70 and 80 y/os. Waaa! I got over the ATM thing at the casino--thanks for remembering, Sushiboy. It was a nightmare! :)

Dale, I remember that. They're all the same--they can't help themselves.

Mel, I LOVE that she bought you the silver rinse. She knows what's good for you. :)

Lynda, My mom IS cute. That's what kills me. No one can be mean to someone so cute.
