Conversations with Crazy D

Tuesday, October 25, 2005

Conversation 1:

Me: “I think that we have known each other in a past life. In fact, I am pretty sure that all the people in my life have been with me in various forms in previous lives.”

My Mom: “Yeah? Who do you think I was Before?”

Me: “I think that I was your parent in a previous life”

My Mom: “Why do you say that?”

Me: “Because you are a young soul and I am an old soul. I think I must not have done a very good job as your parent, so they sent you back to be my parent this time ….as punishment.”

My Mom: “Punishment?”

Me: “Yeah, punishment. Clearly I didn’t give you enough attention when you were my kid, so I was sent back as a captive audience.”

Conversation 2:

My Mom: “You know I went to this end of life care workshop this past week. It was a good conference and talked about how when people approach the end of their life, they need to have the people they love around them.” (She is a nurse who works with geriatric patients)

Me: “Hmmmm.”

My Mom: “ So the facilitator had us start with this list of the people important to us, and then we had to go through and take people off the list during different exercises.”

Me: “OK.”

My Mom: “So what I came to is that I don’t want to be alone when I die and that you and your sister are the two people I want at my side when the end comes.”

Me: “Ok, but just don’t linger- just get to the point and die.”

My Mom: “Just for that, I am going to linger a long time.”

Me: “Ok, but remember who gets to eulogize you and I am not above dishin' some dirt."

That? Was so funny!

Thanks for visiting my site the other day. I told my hubby about the "crutch her up." And we laughed SOOOO hard. Good one!

Mind if I link to your site? Can I, can I?

You are too funny. And actually, that's something I would probably say to my mom.
