Mom and I are watching the end of Chronicles of Narnia Pt.1 when they crown the four kids King/Queen. So I say to mom “Damn, why can’t I be Queen of carajoland at least?!?” Note: Carajoland is a Spanglish term I use when referring to far away places.
While debating the dinner menu with mom, I was scrubbing my eyes with my head down. At the same time, I told mom “My eyes hurt” — she understood “Macaroni and cheese” How did that happen?!
I saw a commercial where a T.V. presenter was wearing a shirt with a lot of fabric flowers attached to it. I turned to mom saying “Wow, she looks like she tripped over a garden and the flowers got stuck to her like pequeques!” Mom burst out laughing and said “Wow, remember those days in Puerto Rico when the pequeques got stuck on your clothes?!

A Child at Heart
I spent the weekend with my best friend and her family. Mom calls me Sunday evening and asks “When are you coming home? I’m lonely!” Oh Lord, what is she gonna do without me when I move out?! LOL
Talkin' to the T.V.
I was watching a show on the Travel Channel with mom today. It was featuring popular pizza places in the U.S. when they showed an obese woman eating a deep dish pie. Mom says to the T.V.: “Yea, keep savoring that deep dish pizza - that’s why you’re so FAT!” LMFAO
my mom just hit my bum with a fly swatter and said “look a fly!” WTF?! LMFAO…someone please help her…
Spoke Too Soon
While relaxing in the living room listening to music, mom turns to me and says “I’m surprised the neighbors haven’t turned on their BBQ yet - it’s Labor Day.” Five minutes later, the BBQ scent comes in through the window! Happy Labor Day everyone! =)
The Shuttle Bus
Mom and I took a trip to IKEA Brooklyn. The shuttle bus was crowded, so we ended up in the back with a speedy driver. Mom turns to me and says “Thank God this bus doesn’t have a sunroof — I’d shoot right out of it with this crazy driver!”
Mom’s forecast: “I’m not worried about Fiona, she’s just looking for Shrek. That’s why she went after Earl!”
I tell mom she needs a match.com profile. Her response: “Screw online dating with my luck I’ll attract a serial killer!”
A Benjamin Button Moment
Mom asked for a hug earlier, so I come up to her and sit across her lap. She tells me “Look, you’re my little baby again!”
