Sometimes my mother really cracks me up, and it's not always intentional on her part. Such as this text message exchange from last night:
MOM: we have power!!
ME: awesome! i didn't know it was out.
MOM: since sunday
MOM: yws but now i am ib n the bath. aawesom
ME: r u also imbibing alcohol?
MOM: not since 10 am
My mother is not a lush. Really, she's not. She just likes her Irish Coffee. You know, in the morning.
