Towels!! More Towels!

Mom: "I need more towels."

Me: "Mom, I already gave you four towels, and you just got here yesterday evening."

Mom: "No you didn't."

Me: "Sure I did. Let me show you."

We go into the guest bath.

Me: "See? One blue towel, one purple towel, and two white towels. That should be enough for a day or so, no?"

Mom: "They don't match."

Grrr. :) She's really cute in a mother sort of way.

Maybe you should give your mother the booze, drugs and SSRIs. Then everything will match.

Why wouldn't you give her enough towels? And ones that match? I mean, come on, she's your mother?!

Zed, I have to agree with your mom and almost everyone else. I can't dry my butt on two different colored towels. Shame on you!

;) hehehe!

Zed, this is blog-rich territory. I can't wait to eavesdrop on a few more of these conversations!

Dale, I gave her 4 towels. Does she need a new one every few hours?? (Wait a minute, you're Canadian. You're not supposed to be good at guilt. Are you sure you aren't Italian? It's what we do.

Mel, I'm always thinking of myself! We brats are like that.

Lynda, but she had two WHITE TOWELS! THEY MATCHED! Honest! You're so mean!

Thanks, Chris. I will be bald by next week, but as long as you get your jollies ...

Help me! Help me, people!

when an 88 year old wants matching towels i always give them to 'em. it's the humane thing to do. ... obviously i'm way more humane than you.

You really ought to have matching towels or you must rescind the title of "Fancy" Zed!

I DO have matching towels, Doctor Mom. I just didn't give them to my mother. That's very wrong, isn't it? I hang my head in shame.

The situation has been rectified since I wrote this post, however. And I feel a better person for it. :)
