Conversation with my Mom
Mom - Happy Birthday! Ok, where's my Mother's Day present?
Me - Mother's day? That's not til next month, isn't it?
Mom - Waaa? How can you forget? Your birthday is also My Mother's Day! I carried you for 9 difficult months, went through 24 hours of the worst labor pains that I can still remember clearly 40 years later, all with no pain relief. This is more my day than yours!
Me - You're right. Happy Mother's Day.
Mom - Good, now give me my Mother's day present.
I give her a big hug and kiss.
Mom - Happy Birthday my biggest baby.
Me - Hey, that means I get to have Mother's Day an extra 3 times a year.
Mom - You had an epidural all 3 times. Not the same.
Me - Darn!
It's nice having my folks around on my birthday!
