Random scenes from family life on Mother’s Day
This was my Mother's Day card from Daughter 2 and Son. Subtle, what? By the way, Son does say that he’d take this possible cat with him when he leaves home. Hmm.
Daughter 2 [to Son]: It would be a shame to leave a kitten alone all day. You could get one of those baby sling things and take it to university with you.
Son: That sounds like a good idea. [Pause] A bit tricky when I’m in theatre, though.
Daughter 2 [meditatively]: The kitten would have to scrub up.
[Daughter 2 and Son make kitten-objecting-to-being-scrubbed noises.}
[Daughter 2 takes the sticker off a bunch of Mother’s Day lilies and attaches it to her brother’s sweatshirt.]
Son [reading upside down]: “Guaranteed to last 9 days”. What happens to me after that?
Daughter 2 [firmly but sympathetically]: Well, after that you begin to smell.
Son: You know those two cats we’re getting?
Son: Cataract and Glaucoma…
